Sandvik Mining’s hybrid cutting tools provide both smooth cutting efficiency and durability in conditions ranging from soft rock to the harshest of environments. The new hybrid design offers a blend of the efficient cutting characteristics of the company’s patented cap designs, combined with the durability and long life of an insert-style tip.
The bits are robust and they feature an optimized profile for speed and productivity. A slim profile should outlast larger tools with wide, blunt designs. The tapered lower portion provides added strength and stability precisely where it’s needed, minimizing the risk of breakage. This amounts to significantly fewer interruptions for maintenance and, as a result, more time spent cutting coal.
The new Sandvik hybrid tools come in a variety of sizes ranging from a 30 mm shank to 43 mm for longwall applications. Hybrid cemented carbide tips include widths from 18 mm to 25 mm.
