Tungsten Carbide knowledge is the core

Atlas Copco is one of the few companies that have in-house expertise to produce milling machines as well as carbide tools for rock and cement applications. Our years of knowledge in the development and production of milling machines allows us to understand application demands such as the impact of milling performance with various milling depths, the types of asphalt mix as well as temperatures. In addition we also have in-house know-how in our rock drilling tools division on developing tungsten carbide of different degrees of hardness, abrasion resistance and profiles to yield the best cutting performance while minimizing wear. Our offer of milling bits represents a combination of these two know-hows and allows customers to get the best value for money.
