Diamond cutting tools include a wide range of materials – including cubic boron nitride (CBN), polycrystalline/monocrystalline diamond (PCD/MCD) and chemical vapor deposition diamond (CVD-D) – and all of them pose tough machining challenges. To efficiently process these materials and keep up with demand, manufacturers supplying diamond cutting tools to the metalcutting industry, as well as cermet, ceramic and hard metal components of all kinds, are increasingly turning to laser ablation to handle material removal and to generate the finest surface finishes possible.
Tool Laser Ablation Machines
LASER LINE ULTRA
The LASER LINE ULTRA laser machining system works with a state-of-the-art ultra short pulse laser technology that allows all cutting materials to be processed gently and in top quality. The EWAG Laser Touch Machining® Process (LTM®) achieves complex geometries at top surface finish qualities in just one clamping.
LASER LINE PRECISION
The LASER LINE PRECISION laser processing machine handles ultra-hard materials such as PCD, CVD-D, CBN and MKD by laser. It can accommodate rotation-symmetric tools of up to 200 mm in diameter and up to 250 mm in length and indexable inserts from 3 mm internal and up to 50 mm external diameter.
