In this article, we’ll try clarifying and shedding more light on a dilemma confronted by many end users of cutting tools to machine composite materials, when they are required to decide which type of tool to use for their application. There are mainly two types of diamond cutting tools for composites: PCD tools, where the […]
Composite materials are made from two or more material components with different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with different (better) characteristics than each of the individual components.
Diamond is a solid form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a crystal structure called diamond cubic. Hardness is a fundamental property of a material to resist a force applied causing it to deform.
The main difference between real diamonds and synthetic diamonds is that, real diamonds are mined and synthetic diamonds are created in the laboratory.
