PCD Drums and Cutters

SMITH’s PCD cutters and drums are revolutionizing surface preparation applications by using self-sharpening polycrystalline diamond technology to gently shave the surface. These cutters last up to 30 times longer than traditional carbide cutters and cut up to 4 times faster than diamond blades, so you can finish the job faster and be more productive.

These drums are ideal for pavement and flooring applications such as removing coatings, grooving for inlayed traffic markings, leveling uneven surfaces, and removing trip hazards.
