VULA Drilling (Pty) Ltd a Division of B & O Machining
VULA Drilling (Pty) Ltd is the Original Equipment Supplier (OES) of the patented “VULA” range of hard-rock drill bits. This new range of drill bits have been specifically designed and developed with the use of ultra modern Computer-Aided-Design-and-Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) Software to improve penetration rates and increase flushing of the drill bit, resulting in an increase in productivity and meters drilled.
History: Our experience in the manufacturing of drill bits originated back in 1998 when we started to manufacture taper drill bit bodies for some of the major role players currently in the market. VULA Drilling was founded in 2005 after the directors decided to enter the market directly with complete manufactured products as an OES. Through our experience we gained we identified the possibility for further improvements in the drill bits and some of these unique improvements like the spiral and straight flushing grooves running the full length of the body have been patented. The button fitting process was also re-engineered and we believe it to be superior to that of any other manufacturer.
Product Range: Due to highly advanced manufacturing capabilities, VULA offers a wide range of percussion drilling products. Our product range includes taper and threaded drill bits, 22 & 25 Hex taper drill steel, drifter rods, extension rods, shank adaptors, threaded couplings etc.
