PCD wear parts – the guarantee for a precise manufacturing
“Diamonds are not only a girl`s best friend” – but they play an important role for wear protection and guarantee maximum precision and overall equipment efficiency (OEE) for machine tools in serial production – especially when referring to polycrystalline diamond (PCD) which is an (almost) indestructible “all-rounder” due to its hardness.
The decision to use polycrystalline diamonds not only for the machining of non-ferrous metals but also for wear protection, goes back to the year 1973 and the world’s first LACH DIAMANT made PCD tools for the turning of copper commutators.
This know-how became the basis of a broad range of applications for wear protection of different components in machine tools and centreless cylindrical grinding machines i.e.
There are applications as for example for prisms, bearing shells, centre points, steady rest blocks, sliding blocks, work rest blades and punching knives – please note that the examples shown here are presenting a small selection of the numerous possibilities only.
