Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) Tooling
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.
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.
