PCD picks for road planing
Introducing the new Element Six extreme performance D PowerTM Road Pick - exceeding 40 times the life of standard road picks.
The new D PowerTM Road Pick utilises a polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tip that combines sufficient toughness with extremely high wear resistance.
These characteristics are attained in part by high-pressure, high-temperature synthesis. Both Element Six’s extensive laboratory tests and onsite experience confirm that when the properties of PCD are combined with optimal pick design, an operating life many times greater than standard picks is achieved.
Achieving over 40 times the life of standard road picks is a dramatic extension of the pick life. The competitive advantages that Element Six’s worldwide* customers can benefit from include:
Delivering a better surface finish
Over the life of the D PowerTM Road Pick, minimal wear is observed on the PCD tip. This ensures that the picks are operating at peak effectiveness for the duration of their operational life. The result produces a consistent cleaner cut with a smoother surface texture.
Reduced overall milling time
By reducing the number of time-consuming stoppages for spotting (checking) and changing picks, milling time can be cut significantly. Since this is one of the major components in the road refurbishment process, D PowerTM Road Pick reduces project duration enabling companies to meet contract deadlines, grow business and increase their return on investment in capital equipment.
