Element Six Launches HD Series
Back in August, Element Six, Burghaun, Germany, part of the De Beers Group, launched the HD™ Series, a new range of heavy-duty tools specially designed to provide extended tool life and improved reliability for milling and reclaiming operations.
The HD™ Series, which will be fully available in 2022, combines a new larger body and washer disc with Element Six’s premium MasterGrade™ carbide. The tools’ larger body has by design more steel, which leads to extended tool life and increased wear resistance, improving performance in highly abrasive conditions where the steel body typically wears quickly.
With its HD™ Series, Element Six will provide operators with a choice of four new MasterGrade™ tips, enabling them to select the tool that best meets the need of their application.
Element Six’s MasterGrade™ carbide uses the company’s proprietary “Nanotechnology” to enhance the cobalt binder matrix and optimize wear without impacting the bit’s toughness. These innovative carbides result in a versatile bit with increased operating efficiency, according to the manufacturer.
Markus Bening, sales director for Mining, Road, & Wear Parts at Element Six, said: “The HD™ Series will provide milling and reclaiming operations with improved overall performance and flexibility to ensure that the tool matches the application in question. The tool’s increased size makes it suitable for highly abrasive conditions and enables operators working in those conditions to utilize the toughness of MasterGrade™.”
