Processing the hardest superalloys and composites requires tools made with even tougher materials, especially cubic boron nitride (CBN) and polycrystalline diamond (PCD). Conventional grinding may not always apply, especially when heat generation threatens material characteristics and diminishes their integrity. In these instances, the same technology that enables automated diamond wheel dressing – electrical discharge machining (EDM) – can perform rotary tool erosion to process PCD/CBN at far faster rates.
