Haas UMC-750: Oilfield Drill Bit Cone Demo

The oilfield drill bit cone manufactured in this video illustrates one component of a completed drill bit assembly, commonly known as a tri-cone. Tri-cone assemblies are used during the exploration for oil and natural gas throughout the world. Most common are designs that include carbide "buttons," which are pressed and braised into the holes drilled in the cone. However, there are many different designs of tri-cone bits, depending on the manufacturer, as well as on the earth material that must be penetrated during the drilling process.
