Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) Tooling

PCD Miter Shaper cutter

What is PCD?

Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) is a composite cutting tool material produced with a tungsten carbide substrate, enabling it to be brazed to a cutting tool body. Because of the extreme hardness typical of diamond, PCD is an excellent material for machining non-ferrous metals and wood products.

Benefits of PCD:

  • Edge life of 30 to 200 times greater than carbide depending upon application.

  • Reduced machine and employee "down time" for tooling change and calibration.

  • Consistency of profile and surface finish reducing or eliminating sanding.

PCD Application:

  • Cost effective long-term tooling solution for high volume or repetitive production.

  • Applicable for most automated machinery, CNC routers, panel saw, tenoner, molder, shaper, and edge-banding.

  • Wear-resistant alternative for machining abrasive materials, solid surface, synthetic or natural woods.
