SMART CUT™ technology

First company to develop SMART CUT™ technology. ADVANCED Technology that redefines the standard in cutting and drilling. Diamonds are oriented inside matrix so that every diamond is better able to participate in cutting, drilling, or diamond machining action. Every diamonds works in the right place and at the right time, where you need it most

Sintered (Metal Bond) Diamond & CBN Tools

Sintered (metal bonded) diamond tools for a large variety of applications, materials, and industries. Metal Bonded Diamond Tools are “impregnated” with diamonds. This means that selected diamonds are mixed and sintered with specific metal alloys to achieve the best cutting performance

Resin Bond Diamond & CBN Tools

Organic bond matrix that is formed by high pressure and high temperature. Based on phenolic or polyimide resins mixed with fillers or abrasive grains. Recommended for applications where cut quality and surface finish is very important. Compared to their sintered (metal bond) counterparts. Used on wide range of applications due to their fast.

Electroplated Diamond & Tools

Electroplated Diamond Products from 0.5 microns to 20 grit (diamond mesh size) in Synthetic, Natural Diamond or CBN (cubic boron nitride). Electroplated Diamond Products Manufactured by UKAM Industrial are Multi Layered. They have 3 layers of diamonds, not just 1 layer of diamonds like conventional electroplated diamond tools. This provides longer drilling.

Braised Bond Diamond & CBN Tools

Brazed Bond Diamond Tools are produced inside vacuum oven at a high temperature, single layer of diamond crystal bonded to steel body with very high diamond exposure. Not only does it promote high diamond exposure, but it also eliminates the loss of diamond particles through pull-out. The diamond section will not strip or peel from the steel body.

Hybrid Bond™ Diamond & CBN Tools

Between METAL BOND and RESIN BOND. Resin bond process with added nano fillers to increase bond hardness. Hybrid bond offers advantages of cutting speed and fine finish that you have come to expect in a resin bond, along with long life, consistency, aggressiveness, durability, and excellent performance typically available in sintered (metal bond)

Vitrified Bond Diamond & CBN Tools

Fired Ceramic Bond matrix, which is very brittle and porous. Also known as ceramic bond. Based on fusible glasses combined with fillers and abrasive grains. Offers durability of sintered (metal bond), along with free cutting action of resin bond. Vitrified bond has higher bonding strength then resin bond. Vitrified bond diamond tools are free cutting, produce good surface roughness, have good wear resistance and retain straightness and form very well.

PCD & PCBN (Polycrystalline Diamond & CBN) Tools

PCD (polycrystalline diamond) is composed of diamond particles that are sintered with a metallic binder at extreme temperatures and pressures,  creating the hardest and one of the most abrasion resistant materials used in cutting tools. These inserts are braised on to cutting tools and are used in machining applications in many applications where you find carbide tooling that includes sawing, routing, drilling and profiling to maximize tool life and reduce production cost.

CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) Diamond Tools

CVD diamond coating takes place in a vacuum chamber using a hot-filament, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Carbon gases are introduced into the vacuum chamber where high temperatures cause carbon atoms to re-bond into a 100% pure crystalline diamond structure. The crystalline diamond slowly grows on the surface of cutting tools (usually made from carbide) forming a continuous coating of up to 20 microns in thickness. Standard carbide tooling with this type of coating depending on application will last 10 to 50 times longer.

Diamond Dressers

Diamond dressing tools are made with natural diamond stones set in steel shanks of various shapes for straight or form dressing. For truing and dressing of conventional abrasive grinding wheels. Single point, multi point, chisel shape, straight, angle, and radius configurations.

Diamond Rotary Dressers/Dressing Rollers

diamond rollers are used to form grinding wheels for many different kinds of mass production. Shorter dressing time and long tool life leads to high productivity and consistent process conditions. Many kinds of conventional grinding wheels, and in special cases super-hard grinding wheels, can be dressed with this dressing method. Dressing rollers can be classified under Diamond profile dressing rollers and Diamond form dressing rollers.

CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) Diamond Tools

CVD diamond coating takes place in a vacuum chamber using a hot-filament, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Carbon gases are introduced into the vacuum chamber where high temperatures cause carbon atoms to re-bond into a 100% pure crystalline diamond structure.
