Sandvik cutting tools
New tools from Sandvik offer extended wear live and better performance
Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology is offering new developments in Mineral and Ground Tools for mining, trenching and road planing. The firm has developed an advance range of patented carbide grades, which are manufactured using an innovative process and utilise new raw materials. According to the company, this 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. These tools can cut more efficiently and last longer, while delivering a better finish according to the company.

The firm has been investing in developing new hard material alloys for use in demanding environments. The new carbide grade generation can cope with tougher demands on tool performance, particularly relating to cemented carbide tip material and its resistance to wear and fracture, become more critical as operations progress into harder rock and mineral formations. Meanwhile larger continuous cutting machines are replacing the traditional drill-and-blast process in many excavation projects. This continuous cutting process offers a lower cost/tonne of excavated material.
