A reamer is an important tool used in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) machines to enlarge the diameter of the pilot hole created during the drilling process. It is specifically designed to remove excess material and create a larger pathway for the installation of pipes or conduits.
Here are some key features and functions of a reamer used in HDD machines:
- Enlarging the Borehole.
- Different Sizes and Designs.
- Cutting Mechanism.
- Connection to the Drill String.
- Fluid Circulation.
- Durability and Strength.
