What is a PDS Diamond Abrasive?


PDS diamond abrasives are superabrasives that excel at grinding and polishing demanding applications, especially in high-volume scenarios. Toolmakers benefit from PDS diamonds' optimized performance solutions, enabling them to create stock tools across different applications with a balanced profile of abrasives. The PDS range offers added assurance even in varying materials and conditions due to half-life tumbling impact (TI) testing and a unique blending process. This process allows for more variability within each batch while the crystals remain tightly controlled within the consolidated TI specs.

Craving adaptability, toolmakers choose PDS diamond abrasives for their wider operating windows. These abrasives mitigate production risks, guaranteeing consistent mass output even with material and condition fluctuations. PDS diamonds empower toolmakers to balance performance and tool life, particularly in applications like asphalt and drilling with variable media.

PDS diamond abrasives enable toolmakers to expand their market by creating single tools that conquer diverse media applications. This is achieved through strategically selected grits, all meticulously chosen to deliver a targeted TI value. For toolmakers crafting stock tools, PDS diamonds offer a balanced solution that performs effectively across various media and cutting processes.

Beyond the standard PDS range, Hyperion caters to niche applications by offering customizable PDS diamond abrasives. Toolmakers can tailor crystal properties like toughness, shape, size, coatings, and surface treatments to achieve their unique performance goals, creating highly specialized tools that perfectly match their needs.
