The Research Progress of Automatic Drilling Technology


Article Preview

This paper summarizes the current research condition of automatic drilling technology at home and abroad, it analyses the current type of automatic drilling combined with concrete examples. By comparing the working principles and structure characteristics of the automatic drilling, it points out the shortcomings of the existing technology and the development trend of the automatic drilling in our country. It is considered that AC frequency conversion motor technology and full hydraulic automatic drilling technique should be emphatically promoted, so many due improvements should be made on automatic drilling in China. Finally it makes a conclusion that the intelligent drilling must be achieved and automatic drilling system as the indispensable important part of intelligent drilling will have more broad application prospect in intelligent drilling.
