What is a PCD Insert? -Application of PCD inserts

Like PCD cutting tools, PCD inserts have the advantages of high hardness, low coefficient of friction, low coefficient of thermal expansion, wear resistance, and long life.

1. Definition of PCD

PCD is the abbreviation of polycrystalline diamond in English.

Polycrystalline diamond refers to the polycrystal formed by mixing diamond powder (micron size) with a small amount of metal powder (such as Co, etc.) and sintering at high temperature (1400°C) and high pressure.


2. PCD Milling Inserts

PCD inserts are also divided into milling cutter inserts and turning tool inserts.


PCD Milling Cutter: A rotating tool with one or more teeth for milling. When working, each tooth cuts off the allowance of the workpiece intermittently. Milling inserts are mainly used for machining planes, steps, grooves, forming surfaces and cutting off workpieces on milling machines.

3. PCD Turning Inserts

PCD turning tool is one of the most widely used tools in cutting.

Turning inserts have positive rake angles and grooves for easy chip breaking. The working part of the pcd turning insert is the part that generates and processes chips, including the cutting edge, the structure that breaks or rolls up the chips, the space for chip removal or chip storage, the channel of cutting fluid, etc.

4. PCD inserts application and processing materials

PCD cutting tools are widely used in aviation, aerospace, automobile, electronics and other industries, and can process non-ferrous metal materials and non-metal materials.

PCD inserts are suitable for processing non-ferrous metal materials such as Al, Mg, Cu and their alloys and non-metallic materials.

PCD inserts


Non-ferrous metal materials and their alloys: such as aluminum, cast aluminum, aluminum alloy, magnesium, magnesium aluminum alloy, silicon aluminum alloy, copper, copper alloy, red copper, brass, tungsten carbide hard alloy, ceramics and other materials. Automobile pistons, automobile hubs, roller rings and other parts.


Non-metallic materials: such as composite materials, carbon fiber, glass fiber, graphite, glass, reinforced plastics and other materials, such as aircraft wings, carbon fiber auto parts, graphite electrode molds, fiber sheets, granite, glass fiber tubes, glass fiber sheets, etc.
