PCD cutting tools grinding problems and solutions

What is PCD?

Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) is a new type of superhard material that has been researched and used internationally since the 1970s. It is formed by sintering at a high temperature of 1400°C and a high pressure of 6GPa.


Difficulties in PCD processing

Due to its high hardness, PCD material is easy to produce high temperature in the processing process, and the high hardness also leads to poor grinding efficiency, so it is really a difficult material to grind.

PCD grinding solution

Abrasive selection:

In order to process PCD materials, abrasive of higher hardness should be selected, so only super abrasive grinding wheel with diamond or CBN abrasive can be selected.


Bond selection:

However, Superabrasive grinding wheels are mostly resin bond , but Vitrified bond are more suitable for PCD materials.Because Vitrified bond sintering can produce more pores, and Vitrified good heat resistance, cutting sharp, so it is not easy to heat and expansion.

When grinding with high hardness, the grinding efficiency and precision will be higher than ordinary resin diamond grinding wheel.Therefore, when processing PCD materials, the most appropriate choice is to use Vitrified bond grinding wheel.


Product Recommendations

Vitrified diamond grinding wheels for PCD & PCBN tools

Vitrified diamond grinding wheels for PCD & PCBN tools


It is suitable for rough, medium, fine and super fine grinding of PCD/CBN tools. In addition to grinding PCD/PCBN/Monocrystal standard tools, it can also grind PCD milling cutters, reamers, and other customized tools.



1. The porous structure of the abrasive layer makes the passivated diamond fall off faster, which can prevent vertical stripes on the workpiece and improve the surface quality


2. Perfect dimensional tolerance control, applicable to CNC and manual grinder


3. Good self-sharpening, high grinding efficiency, high wear resistance, low abrasive consumption


4. The use of Vitrified bond can make pcd/cbn tools to achieve a good surface finish and avoid cutting edge chipping, thereby reducing the scrap rate and improving the accuracy of Pcd/cbn tools


5. The service life of the Vitrified bond grinding wheel is more than 10 times that of the resin bond grinding wheel, and can realize easy online dressing

























Other wheel sizes can be customized

Suitable for all kinds of tool grinders: EWAG 、Coborn、Vollmer、Agathon、MAKINO、WAIDA、MYTECH

    How to polish large size single crystal diamond?

    At present, the main diamond processing methods include mechanical polishing, thermochemical polishing, tribochemical polishing, laser polishing, ion beam polishing and chemical mechanical polishing.Due to the anisotropy of diamond, "hard" and "soft" polishing directions have completely different material removal rates.Experimental results show that atomic-level roughness values can be obtained in a shorter time by mechanical polishing in the crystallographic directions <100> and <110> or in another direction deviating from <110> at an angle not exceeding 20°.
