Veined Compax® PCD Round Tool Solutions

Hyperion Materials & Technologies' veined Compax® PCD reduces grinding costs due to its unique design - a cemented tungsten carbide substrate with polycrystalline diamonds (PCD) sintered within the slots (veins) oriented along the helix angle. Because the diamond vein is sintered at high pressure and high temperature, our veined PCD offers a robust joint between the cemented carbide and diamond while minimizing grinding costs for tool fabrication. 

The vein solution offers up to 30% better total cost of ownership when compared to traditional coated carbide solutions due to the ability to get multiple regrinds and significant tool life performance improvement. The nibs are designed specifically for use in machining of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) and CFRP/metal stacks.
