Maintain excellent form & sharpness. Providing lower wear rate, longer life, and minimum level of chipping on wide variety materials. ​

SMART CUT® Nickel Bond Hubless series New Generation & Technology Dicing Blades, have a high diamond concentration and give a freer, faster cutting action with minimum heat  generation. Diamonds have higher protrusion ratio, staying on the surface of the cut allowing for fast material removal.  Hubless Nickel Bond dicing blades are capable of maintaining excellent form & sharpness. Widely used for cutting wafers and thin substrates.

  • Superior Wear Resistance (Hard Bond)
  • Ultra Thin Kerf (thinnest blades available (down to .0008”)
  • Excellent rigidity for higher exposure
  • Exceptionally long blade life
  • Maintains good edge geometry
  • Excellent on applications requiring high accuracy

SMART CUT®  Hubless are produces in highly ontrolled, clean room environment under the Highest Quality Standards. Only the highest quality raw materials are used in manufacturing process. Utilizing world class quality control, inspection, and measurement equipment.

Highly Experienced Engineers and chemists constantly monitor and control all material input & output at all stages of manufacturing process. Insuring product consistency for use in demanding & sensitive applications such Nano Technology, MEMS, etc. This process allows for blades to be produced with very tight tolerances, and optimize kerf shape, geometry, diamond size, and bond hardness to fit your particular application/requirements

About Nickel (Plated) Bond

Electroplated (nickel bond) diamond products usually have a single layer of diamonds, held by a tough, durable nickel alloy. Nickel is frequently used as a base for plating diamond. Because of its excellent strength, toughness and flexibility during the plating process, electroplated diamonds are able to retain their original shape and dimensions throughout their working life. Unlike sintered) metal bond or resin bond diamond products, where diamond particles are buried in bond and held together by metal or resin binder deep inside. Electroplating allows diamond particles to protrude from the bond matrix, providing a free, faster cutting action with minimum heat generation.

Silicon wafer dicing is usually done with the plated diamond blade (hubbed or hubbless) which has proven most effective for this application. The Kerfs are typically in the 1-3 mil. range using a nominal spindle speed of 30,000 RPM with feed rates as high as 8 inch per sec.

How SMART CUT® Nickel Bond Works?

The sharpest and finest quality diamonds or CBN crystals that go into a SMART CUT® Nickel Bond, immediately penetrate into the material, grinding and polishing as they cut.

Please note that nickel bond dicing blades are not 100% resilient, that is if a blade is deformed through mishandling it will allays retain a certain amount of that deformation. Though that some mishandling may not have noticeable impart on the cut quality (this would depend on parameters required and the amount of damage done). Nevertheless, proper handling procedure is important to the safe use, and overall robustness of any precision grinding process.

    • Always inventory the blades in the original package as packaged from us. This will not only protect the blades, but allow the necessary blade information to be available on hand.
    • Store the package away from obvious hazards such as water, hear and dust
    • Clean hands and clean bench is required for any inspection or inventory purposes
    • Handle the blades using the inside diameter hole whenever possible


  • A careful and through cleaning is an important step to a reliable diamond glade cutting process. Below are some guideless
  • All cleaning should be done in an area that is as particulate free as possible, a clean room is optimal, but not absolutely required.
  • Use a residue free cleaning solvent, isopropyl alcohol is recommend, but acetone is also acceptable
  • Use clean, laboratory grade lint free wipes
  • Always visually inspect for any debris or particulate that might be imbedded or otherwise requires special or added treatment to remove

MOUNTING (stacking)

There a re numerous mounting systems (Arbor, Hub, Flange) each requiring slightly different components and procedures. Below are some recommendation:

    • The mounting hardware (arbor, hub, flange) and the stacking components (Spacers, Blades) must be clean of any debris
    • A through visual inspection for burrs dings dents or other damage.
    • Mechanically inspect the mounting hardware for axial and radial run out to verify that all is within specification
    • Assemble and inspect per manufacturer instructions


The truing of a diamond blade is an important step towards a repeatable and robust cutting process. Without this step the blade or the material can become damaged due to the “hammering” caused by excessive radial run out of the blades. This damage can lead to inconsistent blade performance and cut quality, and in extreme circumstances blade failure.


Blade dressing is an important part of precision cutting process. With an optimized dressing system and intervals the cutting forces will be stable and predictable

Use the blade recommend dressing system (stick, plate or board) and process. This will optimize the diamond protrusion for maximum blade life and cut quality. Deviations from those recommendations should be used with considerable causation.

There are many variables involved with the selection of a suitable blade dressing systems. Including bond type, bond hardness & bond structure. Abrasive size and type, abrasive concentration, the blade form and size.

Generally speaking the size of abrasive particles used in the dressing system (whether stick, plate or board) should be slightly larger than the abrasive size of nickel bonded dicing blade being dressed.
