Grades

We offer PCD disks with both uni-modal and bi-modal grain sizes, allowing you to choose the most suitable option for your specific cutting requirements. Uni-modal grain sizes provide excellent cutting efficiency and surface finish, while bi-modal grain sizes offer enhanced wear resistance and extended tool life. With our diverse range of grain sizes and grades, you can find the perfect PCD disk for your cutting needs.

 

  • Disk Diameter: 63mm and 75mm *bespoke diameters available on request 
  • PCD Grain Size: 0.5-1um, 2um, 5um, 10um, 25um & multimodal 30um & 2um
  • PCD Overall Disc Height: 1.6mm, 2.0mm & 3.2mm
  • PCD Diamond Layer Thickness: 0.4 – 0.6mm

Whether you need specific shapes or sizes our team can assist you in creating tailor-made segments that fit seamlessly with your cutting tools.

Bespoke Disk Sizes and Features:

At our company, we understand that certain projects call for unique disk sizes and features. Therefore, we offer the option for customers to request bespoke disk sizes and additional features. Whether you need a specific diameter, thickness, or special features such as chamfers or holes in the disk, our team is committed to delivering customized solutions that meet your exact requirements.

Applications

Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) disks are a revolutionary cutting tool designed to cater to a wide range of industries and tasks. With their exceptional hardness, abrasion resistance, and thermal conductivity, PCD diamond disks excel in cutting and machining applications where traditional tools fall short.

 

Whether it’s precision machining of non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper, and brass, or cutting abrasive materials like wood, composites, and plastics, PCD diamond disks deliver unparalleled performance and extended tool life. These disks are also widely employed in the construction and mining sectors for concrete cutting, drilling, and grinding operations.

 

By harnessing the outstanding durability and efficiency of PCD diamond disks, businesses can achieve superior productivity and cost-effectiveness, making them an indispensable asset for various cutting-edge industries.

 

Quality

Each of our PCD disks is accompanied by a quality assurance report verifying that it has passed our stringent quality assurance tests. These tests include a size & appearance check and a vickers hardness test. We also measure the thickness of the diamond layer across the disk using SEM as well as checking the micro sintering morphology to ensure it is uniform with no impurities or particle aggregations.
