The downhole environment may well be the toughest application there is for mechanical tools. The Optimist team has a long history of developing highly wear resistant products for this environment that are designed, developed and manufactured to perform.
Some of our products include:
Tiled radial bearings for mud lubricated downhole motors – motor performance has dramatically increased recently. Power sections can now produce both high torque and high RPM, which results in higher WOB and energy to the bit. When combined with increased bend angles, the resulting loads on radial bearings are much higher than ever before. Optimist is pleased to deliver a solution to this challenge with a product that provides both high wear resistance with high toughness, and consistent dimensional control with reliable quality. Above all, we are dedicated to provide superior customer service for these critical components.
Diamond tooling, diamond impregnated parts - parts and tools made with either synthetic or natural diamonds have a wide range of applications in a wide range of industries. Optimist has focused on developing products that are targeted at specific applications in the downhole tool business. From impreg inserts to diamond grinding wheels, if you use diamond products to make parts for the oil & gas business, we have a solution for you.
Sintered tungsten carbide parts – Another critical component to many oilfield products is sintered tungsten carbide parts. Optimist works with a group of different manufacturers around the world to provide fit for purpose carbide parts for a wide variety of uses. From relatively simple inserts for drill bits to complex wear parts for downhole tools, we do the homework for you so that you can focus on your products and enjoy exceptional service for these components.
We look forward to discussing your applications and learning how we can apply our resources to benefit your business.
Optimist specializes in products and tools made with highly wear resistant materials, such as tungsten carbide and diamond, by manufacturing partners in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia.
