The Wassara OWD kit is a diagnostics kit for use on percussive rigs using Wassara hammers.

The LKAB Wassara OWD® system is a sensor and rig parameter steering system that aims to minimize energy inefficiency in percussive drilling through active control of rig drilling parameters. Through intelligent signal processing, the OWD® system can calculate how efficient energy use is, in order to optimize drilling performance and improve productivity. The system continually adjusts rig parameters such as Feed Force and Rotation Pressure, so as to minimise energy wastage, reduce wear on consumables and ultimately increase rig performance and rate of penetration.
