Natural Industrial Diamond may have been the first “superabrasive” many years ago and showed its performance advantage on carbide but times have changed.
Not only have the Superabrasives grown in terms of products and types, but they have allowed the introduction of new workpiece materials due to their performance and longevity.
Today cBN is being used on everything from hardened steel and stainless steel to superalloys and exotic materials being applied in aerospace.
Grinding applications have been revolutionized as speeds and feeds increase with no thermal damage and greater finished part integrity, which is critical in parts and components for aerospace.
Hard turning has become a term in automotive that indicates a hardened part can be machined to tighter tolerances with superior finishes than ever before dreamed possible.
Whether it’s drilling in oil and gas exploration, sawing of stone or concrete, routing in woodworking or coating and growing CVD Diamond windows for lasers, superabrasives are changing the face of every manufacturing operation.
The IDA Member companies keep innovating and inventing to make every operation more cost effective and productive.
