Available through Tyson Tool, Becker Diamantwerkzeuge provides standard and special PCD-compound precision cutting tools tipped with CVD diamond material. According to the company, tools tipped with CVD diamond offer longer life and are less costly compared with those tipped with monocrystalline diamond. Laser cutting is used for the clearance angles, cutting edge radii and profiles, and cutting edges produced with laser technology are said to be sharper than those produced through grinding. The laser technology is also used for cutting the PCD compound tools as well as solid PCD diamond tools.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
