PCD CHARACTERISTICS

PCD tools for thermosetting plastics and thermoplastics are characterized by five important features. These are;

  1. Sharpness of the polycrystalline diamond results in an improved surface finish, a good fibre cut and low heat generation. These benefits minimize uncut fibres and delamination, increase productivity and improve process security
  2. Hardness of the polycrystalline diamond makes the tools more wear resistant and increases the tool life
  3. The accuracy of the PCD tools results in close dimensional tolerances increasing the reliability, allowing you to reduce finishing operations
  4. The thermal conductivity of the polycrystalline material lowers process temperatures which enhances product stability and allows higher cutting speeds
  5. After-sales services: re-conditioning results in a new tool that increases tool life and reduces tool costs

 

SHARP CUTTING

The very sharp cutting edge compared to a CVD Dura coated tool allows a PCD tool to perform consistently and securely. This means that the workpiece will have equal surface finish showing no or minimum de-lamination. The narrow manufacturing tolerances make the process stable, predictable and repeatable.
