Kennametal’s razor sharp thinking
First publishedin World Highways
The new Road Razor ECO Pro is said by its US manufactuer Kennametal to combine a groundbreaking and proprietary shape with improved hardness throughout the head area and a thicker nonagon-shaped washer.
The company says its characteristics make it the economical and ecological tool of choice for road-milling companies interested in improved performance and maximum value.
“When time is money, speed is everything,” says Nick Gaten, marketing director for earth cutting tools at Kennametal. “Maximum hardness and improved shape in road milling tools means much easier cutting at faster speeds for longer than users may have thought possible. Due to significantly lower power demand, customers can choose to run at conventional speeds and save fuel, or run faster and spend less time to complete the job. ”
Gaten says Kennametal’s advanced cold-forming technology gives Road Razor ECO Pro the shape of a worn tool, with better hardness than most new tools.
