PCD Tools To achieve an optimal economic result when using PCD polycrystalline diamond tipped tools, it’s most important to consider all of the application details, machining parameters and expectations to insure the tool is suitable for the project intended. Even with a simple compression bit purchase, the performance and anticipated results over the life of…read more

PCD (polycrystalline diamond) premill cutters are often the “forgotten” tool on an edgebander. They may run for a year or more without needing to be sharpened and so noone thinks much about them until they get dull.

PCD Compact Hogger Polycrystalline Diamond-tipped Hogging Cutters are required for high volume panel sizing of chipboard, MDF, particleboard with melamine, paper, HPL and other abrasive composites on double end tenoners. Depending on application, different diamond grades are available to provide optimum performance and tool life. Just imagine running up 3 million linear feet of particleboard…read more

What is Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) Tooling? PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) has been used in the wood/composites industry for over 40 years due to its abrasion resistant properties and hardness.  This synthetic cutting edge material was pioneered by the DeBeers company (famed for their natural diamond mining history) and General Electric’s Specialty Materials Division.   Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD…read more

Diamond Premill Cutter Diamond Premill Cutters for edgebanders such as Biesse, SCM, Brandt, Holzher and others, come in a variety of sizes and designs. Cutter specifications can be 2, 3 or even 4 wing, with PCD diamond brazed tips or diamond insert knives (which are not designed to be resharpened) and with different PCD tip…read more
