Synthetic diamond coated road pick offers longer life
Element Six, the synthetic diamond division of DeBeers, has developed a revised design for its D Power road picks, claiming greatly extended working life. The D Power road pick will use a polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tip with an improved head design that incorporates tungsten carbide to provide greater protection to the steel pick mount. The company claims that the D Power road pick can deliver up to 40 times the life of a standard carbide pick, providing reduced downtime, increased efficiency and a better surface finish for the contractor. The D Power pick is designed to be used with 1.9-2.0m wide milling machines and though initially designed for Wirtgen machinery will also be suitable for other milling brands.
