Hilti’s X-Change LCS X-CM module core bits restore bit life
By Renée Francoeur
November 19, 2015 – Hilti says its new X-Change module (X-CM) core bits are the first in the market that can be re-tipped right on the jobsite using only a screwdriver. Just replace a worn X-CM module with a new module instead of replacing the entire core bit, it says.
Contractors will find having one barrel and three X-CM modules is comparable to three complete bits, Hilti says.
The LCS X-CM module provides best in class speed while wet coring and users can switch to dry hand-held coring in un-reinforced masonry by changing to the LM module, the company notes, and the LCL X-CM module offers best in class life in wet coring.
Available in a range of diameters from 2-in. to 8-in., the X-CM module “re-tips, renews and restores core bit life”, says Hilti.
