Emergence of Diamond Dressing Tools

Why Use Electroplated Diamond or Cubic Boron Nitride Tools?

Diamond cutting tools find heavy demand in enterprising due to high efficiency

Diamond cutting tools have found increased demand in the industry because these offer high efficiency and economy is also ensured for the enterprise that uses it. Diamond is the hardest substance ever discovered on planet earth. It is derived when carbon is subjected to high temperature and high pressure for long time. Carbon atoms are then arranged in a tetrahedron structure and diamond is formed which is also the purest form of carbon. The tetrahedron structure is responsible for the extreme hardness attribute that makes diamonds capable of cutting and material removing tasks. Since no other material is as hard as diamond, almost every material is effectively removed by the action of diamond grains that are studded on the functional surface of the cutting tool.

Diamond tools offer efficient material removal

Earlier cutting tasks were accomplished through the steel blades that are coated with silicon carbide that renders the blade surface very resilient. However, its wear resistance is not high as compared to the diamond coated surface. This makes diamond dressing tools much desirable in the industrial applications of diversity. The high wear resistance of diamond grains on the tool surface is determined largely by the bonding material and this makes the bonding technology very important. The diamond cutting tools manufacturers like Jain Precision Tools are innovating frontline techniques to develop diamond surfaces to suit different applications. Metal powder bonding, ceramics binding, chemical vapor deposition, electroplating and resin bonding techniques are the most popular ones for developing diamond coated tools. These bonding types have differentiated strengths and therefore are suitable for different degree of material removal applications of industry.

Diamond bonding is really important!

The diamond bonding is directly related to the rate at which the new diamonds are exposed to the surface. This in turn means that the wear resistance also depends on the metal bonding. Precisely speaking, for a moderate level material removing task, appropriately matching bonding is chosen. For highly tough substrates, high level bonding is required. The bonding holds back the diamonds which by themselves are wear resistant! The wearing occurs when the diamond grains are detached from the tool surface and thus lost. Thus economy of diamond dressing tools is also derived from the bonding of the diamond grains with the surface. Research is continuing to develop more efficient tools that are capable of offering higher and extended value in the enterprises that are adopting them fast because of their better durability in the long run.

High impact material removal by diamond dressers

Diamonds when securely fixed on the functional surface of the tool allows for the optimized use of force for cutting applications. The impact that diamonds make with the substrate material is very high and thus precision is achieved in removing the material. Since the wear (considering that appropriate bonding technology is used) is almost negligible, the diamond grains continue to remove particles easily and uniformity is achieved. This makes diamond dressing tools much effective for cutting, grinding and polishing tasks. Companies are now replacing their silicon carbide and steel cutters with the diamonds cutting tools.
