Application of diamond and CBN tools and their advantages over abrasive tools

APPLICATION OF DIAMOND TOOLS AND THEIR ADVANTAGES OVER ABRASIVE TOOLS

  • Processing, sharpening and finishing of tools made of all alloy types.
  • Sharpening and finishing of carbide tools.
  • Processing and cutting of silicon, germanium and other semiconducting
  • Processing, cutting and finishing of tools made of ferrite, ceramic and glass materials.
  • Processing of graphite and carbon rein­forced plastics.
  • Processing and cutting of reinforced fiber glass plastics, fiberplastics.
  • Finishing and polishing of precious stones.
  • Cutting, finishing and polishing of artificial and natural stones.
  • Processing of all types of decorative and technical glasses and porcelain.
  • Cutting and processing of all types of refractory materials.

 

ADVANTAGES OF DIAMOND GRINDING TOOLS OVER ABRASIVE TOOLS

  • High wear resistance.
  • Workpiece life longer after diamond tool profiling.
  • Less thermal workpiece damage due to lower temperature in grinding zone.
  • Longer lasting, hence reduced changeover times.
  • Higher volumes at the same level of quality.
