SINGLE CRYSTALLINE DIAMOND TOOLS

Single-crystal diamond tools are used in a number of industries when surface finish is critical to the application. Because the cutting edge is made of one large diamond stone, the tool can be ground sharp to 10,000x magnification. Tolerances for SCD tools are typically much tighter and more controlled than for polycrystalline diamond tools.



Organizations that require this ultra-precise level of machining include manufacturers of special metal-mirror and optical lenses, university and government laboratories, and agencies such as NASA and the Department of Defense. SCD tools are also increasingly being used on production-type machining centers to cut nonferrous and nonmetal materials for commercial purposes. The growing use of SCD tools in these applications is largely a result of PCD tools not being able to produce the required finish or because applying an SCD tool will eliminate a polishing step.

Our SCD tools are inspected by using a Nikon VMR 3020.
