A diamond cutting tool is a device with diamond grains fixed or glued on functional parts for cutting applications. Since diamonds are the hardest materials and chemically inert, they are perfect for cutting sturdy materials. Thanks to their unique property, the tools have high resistance to wear, great thermal stability, and are ideal for cutting in high-temperature working conditions. The common diamond cuttings tools are:
Diamond grinding blades
Diamond grinding blades are used for grooving and cutting asphalt and concrete. An example is the diamond grinding disc. The disc is where the abrasives are embedded and used with water in sample preparation to avoid thermal damage to the sample examined. Diamond grinding blades are used for making thick cuttings on the material for laying cables or creating joints of dilation. They are available in different thicknesses for flexible use.
Professional diamond blades
Diamond blades are handy for cutting all kinds of materials. The blade is a saw with diamonds fixed on its edges for cutting abrasive and hard materials. They are subdivided according to which machine can use them and the user application. For example, there are diamond blades for table saws, portable machines, cut-off saws, joint cutters, etc. Diamond blades have many uses, including cutting concrete, stones, bricks, ceramics, glass, and even gemstones like diamonds.
Diamond grinding cups
A diamond grinding cup wheel is a metal-bonded diamond tool with cold-pressed or welded diamond segments on a steel body, which looks like a cup. The cup wheels are mounted on concrete grinders to grind abrasive materials like marble, granite, and concrete. There are various specifications and styles of diamond grinding cups to fit different application requirements. For example, the cup with big diamond segments can grind stone and concrete, while those with small diamond segments work for removing paints, glues, and other surface coatings.
Diamond cutting tools find application in the automotive and manufacturing industries. Since diamond is harder than silicon carbide, corundum, and other natural materials, it has more advantages over other abrasives.
