Surface Set Bits

Pilot's experience and craftsmanship are best illustrated in the surface set bit range. Mined diamonds have been selected from the same ethical and reliable sources for many years, resulting in consistent characteristics and reliable products; while designs and setting patterns are constantly evolving to improve performance through dialogue and feedback from the best drillers in the world.

Surface set bits are still the best choice for softer and/or more abrasive formations, where the highly resistant matrix retains the diamonds without the compromises required in an impregnated product where erosion of the matrix is expected.
