GENERATION round-shank picks are distinguished by unique product properties that significantly reduce operating costs. Pick centring is improved and rotation behaviour is demonstrably optimised by an optimised wear plate with a special groove profile. This assures long-term cutting capability and guarantees best possible carbide utilisation. The groove profile also reduces lengthwise wear of the round-shank pick holder and extends service life by up to 25%.

Development of the toolholder centring profile over time

GENERATION : Carbide as a cutting material is the most economical solution, especially for milling non-homogeneous materials in which sudden impact load peaks can be expected. The universal GENERATION carbide round-shank picks are therefore the ideal solution for all applications – no matter whether the milling job involves soft asphalt, hard asphalt or concrete.

Practical colour-coding

Recommended uses

GENERATION : The multi-talented round-shank picks

The practical GENERATION colour coding system makes choosing the right pick for the job even faster. The various carbide sizes are coded with different colours (e.g. W1-10-G ... = black, W6 ... = orange etc.). The letter G (for ‘Groove’) displayed on the pick icon enables immediate identification of picks with an extractor groove.
