|Controlled Waviness Tools
Technodiamant manufactures a wide range of diamond tools
for diamond machining, diamond fly-cutting, and diamond
turning. These tools are most often used on Precitech
and Moore Nanotechnology Systems high precision turning
centers. Edge radius can be either conical or
cylindrical, and can be controlled to very tight tolerances,
depending on radius size. Radius size can be specified
from 15 microns to several hundred millimeters.
Clearance angles can be specified from 7 to 30 degrees. We are routinely able to
achieve waviness on 0.5 mm radius tool of <0.06 microns over
70 degrees, and <0.06 microns over 100 degrees on 0.25mm
radius. Natural diamond is
recommended for controlled waviness tools. Please call
with details of your requirements for technical information
and pricing! We stock several sizes for immediate
Concave radius tool
Instead of following other manufacturers in their production
method, Technodiamant developed an entirely new process for
polishing the radius of diamond tools.
The newly developed machines are equipped with a highly
sophisticated bearing system, which enables Technodiamant to
polish cutting edges in the "difficult" directions of the
diamond. This improves the lifetime of the tool
significantly in many applications. At the same time,
Technodiamant has improved the lapping and relapping
facilities by using a fully automated system. This
ensures, in combination with the conical clearance angle, an
absolute circle instead of an ellipse.
Technodiamant guarantees the sharpness of their tools,
both controlled and non-controlled waviness, at a
magnification of 600x.
In order to avoid touching the radius after finishing the
tool, we have also developed a completely new optical
measuring system. This system makes touching the
radius with a measuring device redundant. It is
possible now to precisely measure the waviness of the radius
and the radius itself without any contact.
It is possible to measure any size window of tool sweep;
normally the size of the window is 100° or 120°.
Technodiamant also has the possibility to assure, by
means of an interference microscope, that the table of the
diamond is free from all polishing grooves. This is of
major importance, because grooves will affect the sharpness
of the cutting edge.
RIGID SHANK or
INSERT STYLE TOOLING
We can provide the diamond mounted onto a
traditional solid shank made of molybdenum or special dense
"chatter-free" tungsten, or we can provide the diamond
mounted onto virtually any type of carbide insert. Our
standard inserts that we provide are 55 degree (DCMW070204)
or 35 degree (VCGT110302) .
All Technodiamant Controlled Waviness Tools are supplied
with a measurement report.
Extensive tests on various materials have proven the
superb quality of our tools.
