A customer in South Carolina recently upgraded all of their DDM heads to the Cortex Solid Head Design. Before, they were using standard chipping heads from another supplier, but upgraded those heads with the Cortex bolt on solution last year in order to double the knife life and reduce knife and wear part costs. As those older heads continued to wear out, the mill decided to upgrade all to the Cortex heads.
The project is another example of how Cortex can meet the customer where they are in the life cycle of their chipping heads – provide a simple bolt on solution or existing knife profile, or replace the heads completely.
• Smoother cut with solid head
• Extended knife life – even from previous Cortex bolt on system
