PCD Tooling

What is Polycrystalline Diamond PCD Tooling?

Polycrystalline diamond PCD tooling has a surface layer of diamond which is bonded at high temperatures and pressures to a carbide base with a binding agent at very high temperature and pressure. The bonded diamond coating makes the cutting surface and edges of the tool extremely hard and durable and suitable for a wide range of precision cutting operations including CNC turning and finishing of non-ferrous metals.

PCD tooling was developed by deBeers more than 40 years ago, and is now very commonly used across a wide range of machining and cutting processes in industry sectors ranging from woodworking and furniture manufacture through to high speed manufacture of aviation components and other special alloy parts.
