Diamonds are much harder than carbide. With diamond tools – at vhf these tools consist of a carbide shank with an attached diamond – you can benefit from a multiple of the tool life. Furthermore, a higher wear resistance characterizes our diamond tools.
Another great advantage of diamond tools is that they are suitable for dry machining. So, these diamonds will quickly become your best friends!
For processing plastic and non-ferrous metals, we recommend polycrystalline diamond (PCD) as cutting material. For milling highly abrasive materials such as GRP/CFRP materials or hard non-ferrous metals, CVD diamond thick-film plates are used. Tools with monocrystalline diamonds (MCD) as well as tools with polycrystalline diamonds (PCD) are available for polishing milled edges.
All diamond tools from vhf can be reground several times. The price for the regrinding service of diamond cutters depends on the tool type and its wear – for further information about this service please contact us!
