Slugger E6 Material Polycrystalline Diamond Inserts
Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD)Inserts are widely used in auto and Aero Industry. according to different machining type, it can be Turning Inserts, Milling Inserts, Threading Inserts, Grooving Inserts. because of PCD’s abrasion resistant properties and hardness, PCD inserts have much longer tools life with high cutting speed and excellent surface finish. (that will help you increase production efficiency and save the time of tools replacement)
In general, PCD tools are famous for the good surface finish on aluminum. but for aluminum, there is one thing tools makers should know it. the silicon content. as our experiences, there are 3 types below.
- 1.the silicon content<7%
- 2.7%<the silicon content<14%
- 3. silicon content >14%
And People also talking about grain size of PCD. yes, depending on various demands for surface finish, we should choose right grain size to make PCD Inserts.
