PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) – HIGH TECH PRODUCT
Diamond is the hardest and wear-resistant material in the world. It is obtained by a sintering
process of diamond grains on a base of massiv carbide substrate, which act as a catalyst causing
an intensive structural change in the single diamond particles.
The brilliant combination of these two elements has produced a material workable and malleable
to the needs of existing profile and much more than any other material either natural or synthetic.
FIELDS OF APPLICATIONS
Thanks to the use of pcd tips in the cutting tools , several have been the advantages in the
processing of:
aluminium
plastic materials
composite materials
gold
teflon
copper,brass,bronze
wood and similars
fiberglass
graphite.
Therefore, the main markets of the PCD tools are
Aerospace, Automotive, Micro-mechanic
and form designers.
ADVANTAGES
Thanks to the PCD technological properties several are the advantages of its applications.
Here We wish to indicate some of them:
-
Longer tool life with the resulting reduction of downtime (set-up time per tool changes)
-
Increase of the productivity thanks to the high speed material removal rate and cutting
performance achieved by PCD tool
-
Strong reduction of the cost per piece produced
-
Manufacturing processes are more reliable
-
Constant workpiece quality in relation to the tolerances and finish grade.
