PCD inserts (polycrystalline diamond) are composed of two layers :
● One support layer in tungsten carbide
● A layer of PCD crystals bound with a metal agent
Matières à usiner
and other materials
Machining with soft materials
Carbide tools are often subject to disproportionate degradation. The chipping procedure produces excessive heat, causing accelerated wear of the tool. PCD tools allow a better heat evacuation through the chips than hard metal tools. Chipping is easier to handle, and the tool suff ers less wear.
The production of PCD cutting tools by laser machining is highly complex, requiring ultra-precise and sophisticated machines.
Laser sharpening generating no efforts on the tool, the mass and the kinetic of the machine have been developed specifically to ensure very fast and precise movements.
1. Very sharp cutting edges can be achieved. The laser cuts the synthetic diamond.
Comparison of the edge quality.
2. Very long tool life
3. Allows the production of highly complex shapes from a dxf file provided by the customer.
