Visitors are encouraged to visit Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology in the Silver Lot, booth S5128, during CONEXPO-CON/AGG, 7 – 11 March 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to learn about new developments in Mineral and Ground Tools for mining, trenching and road planning.
Sandvik’s latest generation of patented carbide grades, manufactured using an innovative process technique with completely new raw materials, 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.
Sandvik constantly develops new hard material alloys to function in the most demanding environments. One result of its extensive research projects in this field is the development of the new carbide grade generation – providing larger, stronger and more efficient tools. 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. Larger continuous cutting machines are being used to replace the traditional drill-and-blast process in many mining projects. This continuous cutting process offers a lower cost per ton of excavated material, ensures better worker safety and also has a positive effect on the environment.
