CGC Kymon employs its innovative forging process to manufacture high strength drill bit forgings for the oil and gas industry.
CGC Kymon’s forging process delivers superior structural integrity and directional strength to the forged DTH drill bits, unmatched by other metalworking processes.
Forged to near net shape, with forged‐in instead of machined-in steps and tapers, CGC Kymon’s proven forging process produces directional grain flow that results in superior mechanical properties of impact strength and fatigue resistance.
Key benefits of predictable structural integrity include reduced part inspection requirements, simplified heat treating and machining, and assured optimum part performance under field-load conditions.
CGC Kymon specialises in forging larger sizes of 17.5” up to 42” in industry preferred alloys such as Hytuff and AISI 4330.
