Tool Joints for Specialty Drillpipes

OPT has worked with major oil companies and equipment manufacturers to develop and test special tool joints for many unique drill pipe applications, including:

  • A high-strength titanium tool joint for use in all-titanium drill pipe
  • A shrink-fit steel tool joint for use on titanium or aluminum drill pipe
  • A self-aligning tool joint for use in smart drill pipe systems


OPT leverages its experience and expertise in tool joint design, manufacture, and materials such as high-strength titanium alloys to develop unique solutions for these special drill pipe applications. Please contact OPT if you have a need for a special threaded connection for your application.
