Natural diamond applications
Using natural diamond cutting tools is essential in a number of specific turning applications, including:
AEROSPACE: machining glass fiber, carbon fiber, graphite fiber and filled resins.
BIOENGINEERING: processing heart valves, contact lenses and ophthalmic prostheses.
ELECTRONICS: machining memory disks, silver alloy, laser mirrors and pure copper parts.
PLUMBING/GAS: machining precision brass balls, faucet valves, decorative plumbing fixtures and PVC balls.
METALWORK MANUFACTURING: machining light alloys, copper, bronze, brass, antifriction material, filled resins and sintered alloys.
METROLOGY: HRC hardness test indentors, in-process inspection probes, on-bench inspection probes and styluses.
JEWELLERY: machining watch cases, straps, chain and relief patterns.
