fields with super abrasives products.
Diamond is a pure carbon in a cubic structure. It is the hardest of
all known materials. Many applications benefit by the use of diamond
tools in industry for grinding, turning, sawing, lapping, wear
resistance, etc. As it enables faster operating, extended tool's
life and allows very accurate tolerances of shape and size. Use in
industry are either "natural" diamond extracted from the ground,
crushed and shaped to suit a particular requirement, or "synthetic"
man made diamond specially for specific application. Diamond is made
and graded according to its size, shape, and friability.
Diamond is used for cutting or grinding hard, brittle and abrasive
materials, but it is not suitable for grinding high carbon-steel.
This is because iron has an affinity for carbon (which is what
diamond is) at a high temperature.
Diamond tools are
used for grinding hard or very abrasive materials, such as:
Stone and marble
nitride (CBN) is man made.
It is a chemical bond of the elements
boron and nitrogen with cubic lattice structure made in a high
temperature / pressure process. It is available in different grades
and sizes and is particularly designed for grinding hardened steels.
CBN is second only to diamond in its hardness.
Electro plating is a method of bonding diamond/CBN particles to a
steel blank, using Nickel as bonding material. Electro plated tools
can not be dressed. The layer of Nickel and Diamond/CBN, follows
exactly the given shape of the blank. Therefore, Electro plated
tools are the best choice for profile grinding. Electro plated tools
can be re-plated, after succeeding the first use, the tool can be
striped off and re-plated, thus, efficient & economic re-platable
process can be achieved.
New method for manufacturing diamond and CBN tools.
Manufacturing inside vacuum oven at a high temperature.
The tool visually looks similar to e.p. tools.
One layer plating on a metal blank.
The method allows to control the density of the grits and to
prevent clogging of the tool.
Possibility to reach very homogeneous thickness of layer and to
keep the correct profiles.
Vaccum brazed tools are exceptionally agressive as the tight bond
allows a very exposed grit.
