What is PCD Inserts ?


Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) is a synthetic diamond product that is sintering together selected diamond particles with a special technology. It is composed by the diamond and matrix, we put the PCD diamond layer on the tungsten carbide substrate, which will offer better performance than other carbide insert and ceramic cutters. And In some certain application, PCD Tools Life will be 50~10 times of carbide cutting tools. Also PCD Tipped Cutters will have similar advantages with natural diamond in some industry.


What are the advantages of The PCD cutting tool ?


A. Longer tool life. Due to the very high hardness of the PCD diamond,the PCD tool life can exceed carbide cutting tool life 50 to 100 times in certain applications.

B. Higher machining efficiency. With the very sharp edge and high abrasive resistance, the PCD cutting tools can get higher cutting speed than that of tungsten carbide tools.

C. Higher surface finish quality.

D. Highly improved workpiece quality and excellent dimensional control.

E. Lower machine downtime.

F. Lower cost per piece.

What are the application fields of the PCD cutting tool ?


And PCD Tools (Polycrystalline Diamond) can be used in wide range operations, such as milling, grooving, turning, facing and boring, ect. The following will recommend some common application field:


(1) Aluminum and aluminum alloys

(2) Copper, Brass and bronze alloys

(3) Gold, Silver, Tungsten Carbide and others.

(4) Carbon and Graphite Ceramics

They also can be used many other fields. And the cutting speed also can be made wide range.
