diamonds-smallThe hardest natural substance known to man, diamond is a leading choice for industrial use…


because of its resistance to wear and lack of chemical reaction to almost any substance.The hardness of diamond allows it to be ground and polished into very accurate and sharp cutting edges.



When choosing diamonds for our tools, we use better than gem quality stones. To create a quality product with long life, you must start with the best materials. Because we use the best diamonds, our diamond tools not only produce optimum results, but are also less prone to breakage. With our many years of experience, we have found how to orient that diamond cutting direction to achieve superior results in surface finish and edge wear.



Synthetic single crystal diamonds are grown in a laboratory from a small diamond seed. They have similar physical properties to natural diamond. Most synthetic diamonds are yellow in color due to higher nitrogen content and trace amounts of left over metal catalysts from manufacturing; however some synthetic diamonds are colorless. Just like tools made from natural diamonds, many synthetic diamond tools are relappable.



Polycrystalline diamond is made up of micron sized synthetic diamond powder that is bonded together at high heat and high pressure. The PCD is bonded to a carbide substrate. Polycrystalline diamond can cut in all directions, but does not allow for high surface polish or sharp edges like natural or synthetic single crystal diamond.



Cubic boron nitride (CBN) is slightly less hard than diamond. It is made from hexagonal boron nitride crystals bonded together at high temperature and high pressure. CBN is often used when machining ferrous materials because of its ability to maintain hardness over a wide temperature range.
