Sandvik introduces tool for abrasive asphalt milling conditions

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology introduces its new Double TriSpec tool, which is intended for use in extremely abrasive asphalt milling conditions. In road milling, the greatest cause of tool failure is known as body wash – the premature wearing away of the steel body that surrounds and supports the vital brazed-carbide insert in each of the tools on the milling drum. When body wash occurs, the tool’s steel body becomes vulnerable to failure, and the tool must be changed long before the carbide tip has been fully utilized – resulting in downtime, lost production and higher labor costs.

Sandvik to display new developments in mineral and ground tools

Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology will be located in the Silver Lot, booth S5128, during CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to learn about new developments in Mineral and Ground Tools for mining, trenching and road planing. Sandvik’s latest generation of patented carbide grades, manufactured using an innovative process technique with completely new raw materials, has made it possible to create new, extra-coarse, super-tough alloys with perfectly uniform grain structure. The benefit is that the tip’s material grade can be better matched to hard rock and soft rock applications.
