The Advantages Of Polycrystalline Diamond(PCD) Tools?
Diamond is the hardest material in nature. Therefore, it is also the most wear-resistant. This unique quality makes diamonds, including synthetic diamonds such as polycrystalline diamonds, an ideal use for cutting tools.
Polycrystalline diamond tools are known for their long cutting life, high cutting speed, and excellent performance in processing non-ferrous materials such as aluminum and composite materials.
What is polycrystalline diamond?
Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) is a special anti-corrosion material. Non-systematic oriented diamond crystals are bonded to the bottom layer of tungsten carbide. These artificial diamonds are produced in the laboratory through a high-temperature, high-pressure sintering process, during which the voids between the PCD particles are filled with cobalt alloy. As the individual diamond grains are combined with each other, the result is a very strong product that retains its strength and shape.
Benefits of PCD tools
The main advantages of PCD cutting tools include:
Longer tool life and more consistent results: The tool life of solid carbide tools is shorter, sometimes lasting only a few days or weeks, depending on the level of production. On the other hand, PCD tools are designed to work for months, which means less downtime. This makes PCD tools the best choice for high-volume production facilities and small workshops, because the return on investment will be quick, because of a more efficient workflow, fewer tool changes and reduced cycle time.
High-speed performance: PCD tools can be 10 times faster than solid carbide tools at their highest efficiency and effectiveness. This means that work is completed faster, delivery time is shortened, and the amount of work that can be completed is increased.
Tighter tolerances: secondary finishing operations like grinding and deburring take time, severely damage your bottom line, and cost a lot of money, time and energy. PCD tooling is more accurate than cemented carbide and high-speed steel (HSS) molds, can maintain their cutting edges and form longer shapes, which means you can complete more parts in a shorter time while improving accuracy and quality.
PCD cutting tools
Material versatility: In the past, PCD tools were considered a niche product because they could only be used for a small part of the material. However, advances in manufacturing processes and materials have enabled PCD tools to be used in a variety of applications, including aluminum, composite materials, and abrasive plastics.
Surface finish: PCD tools can provide high-quality surface finish without the need for secondary operations. This means that manufacturers can save time and money while maintaining the same quality standards.
Different grades of PCD are used according to the requirements of surface finish, life, material to be cut and cutting depth.
