Horn USA’s CVD-D-tipped tools are designed for drilling, turning and milling carbide in the sintered state, ranging to a hardness of 2,200 Vickers.

Depending on the application, the geometrically defined cutting edges range from extremely sharp and rounded to positive and negative chamfers. With application-specific cutting edge optimization, CVD-D diamond can be useful for roughing work or fine finishing.

According to the company, the tools enable accurate profile machining in the micron range. In terms of roughness, polishability and corrosion behavior, the surface structure is reportedly comparable to grinding and eroding processes.
