LESS ROD RATTLE
A Tool for Smoother Drilling
The SoftDrive® drilling system is a new patent-pending tool for the mining industry that absorbs and deflects the torsional vibration and shock caused while drilling through transitional rock or broken ground. Alternatively known as a torsional shock absorber, the SoftDrive tool works with any drill bit to make drilling smoother, safer, and faster.
- Convert vibrational energy into performance
- Improve ROP with better efficiency
- Drill smoother, less tortuous wellbores
- Reduce costs by drilling more footage per bit
Ulterra Builds SoftDrive for Safety
With safety always at the forefront, we’ve fundamentally engineered the SoftDrive drilling system to improve day-to-day operations. From the ease of its plug-n-play design to its robust construction, the SoftDrive tool is essential for any drilling rig.
Less Vibration, Less Rod Rattle
Ulterra builds the SoftDrive drilling system from a robust monolithic design that uses calibrated elastomers to deflect shock and vibration spikes. It facilitates smoother drilling and prevents damage to other drilling components further up the drill string. Built with an integrated SaverSub, this design advantage is plug-n-play with any drilling rig or assembly.
Longer Bit Life
By taking the edge off critical vibration and shock events that occur in everyday drilling, the SoftDrive drilling system also promotes an expanded drilling life per bit, which reduces the number of times you have to exit the cab for tool changes or rig maintenance while drilling a bench. SoftDrive lets you settle into your drill and get the job done right.
