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. More often than not, when that time comes, the customer is scrambling to find a quick replacement because without the premill heads, the machine is down. Because of the cost of diamond premill cutters, only a small percentage of edgebander owners have a backup set on the shelf! (depending on machine they can be $1000-$2200 cost per cutter) GDP has a 24-48 hour guaranteed turnaround for PCD premill cutter sharpening (when pre-arranged), so we can get our customers back “up and running” without unnecessary delay. In addition, for the more popular edgebander models we have carbide insert “loaner” tools that can be used while waiting for a new diamond cutter to arrive. Another thing to consider: many premill cutters that come with a new machine are designed as a “disposable” tool, making more than one resharpening highly unlikely. Pictured below is a PCD premill cutter for a Biesse Akron edgebander, #E3401E0136.
