U.S. Union Tool's UDC product line includes end mills, drills and thread mills that can directly mill hard and brittle materials, such as cemented carbide and ceramics. The cutting tools feature a hard diamond coating, comparable in hardness to a single-crystal diamond of approximately 9,000 HV. More than one hundred models are available. According to the company, direct milling conducted with the UDC tools can significantly shorten production times over other processes such as EDM.
