Bond Materials Used In the Transition Layer of Diamond Segments

November 24th, 2009

A diamond blade consists of a steel core and some diamond segments. In many cases, a diamond segment (especially for those diamond segments for laser welding) includes not only a working layer (containing diamonds for cutting), but also a transition layer. The transition layer has no diamonds, and is a pure bond layer which connects the working layer to the steel core of a diamond blade.

Categories of Diamond Tools

November 5th, 2009

Normally, diamonds (synthetic or natural) for industrial uses are small-size grains, and are difficult to be directly used as tools. They are usually fixed on the valid working parts of a tool via some kinds of bond materials or by some other special means to form a kind of tool, which has a certain shape, strength and uses. These tools are normally called diamond tools.
