PCD Tip: Improved Durability
PCD (polycrystalline diamond) is a highly sophisticated, synthetically manufactured, strong mass of carbon and carbide. The PCD tip consists of differing layers: A concentrate of diamond particles in the upper layer, the interlayers and a tungsten carbide substrate. Basically a PCD tip is a crystalline diamond coated carbide tip. Interlayers are the unique WIRTGEN solution to dampen the impact stresses between the tungsten carbide substrate and the highly wear resistant polycrystalline diamond contact surface. The interlayers subsequently enhance the durability and reliability of the PCD contact surface. This special tip design allows use in a wider range of applications.
PCD with FCS Light: Increased flexibility
Wirtgen FCS light (Flexible Cutter System) allows for the rapid, easy exchange of same-width milling drums in less than two hours typically. Thus one machine can be used for a broad range of applications with minimal downtime when exchanging drums. Wirtgen FCS light flexibility is uniquely suited for PCD tool technology since conventional carbide tools may be more economical for some applications while PCD tools may be more economical for others. Wirtgen FCS light provides opportunity for contractors to have the best of both worlds in one machine.
