NCD Technologies offers a standard line of tool coatings including CVD diamond and DLC. NCD Technologies has 15 years of experience coating cutting tools of various sizes. NCD Technologies offers a range of thickness from 100nm to 10s of microns. We have coated the smallest tools in the market, down to 0.0002" (5 microns) in diameter, through standard size tooling range up to inches in diameter.

NanoGrade CVD Coating

NCD Technologies true CVD diamond coatings are the best options when it comes to improved performance and longevity cutting non-ferrous materials.  NCD has developed a proprietary pretreatment process that does not compromise tool strength and allows the processing of tooling down to .001” in diameter (currently not offered by competitors.)  Tooling is subjected to a highly automated and monitored Hot Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition technique to grow the thin films of diamond.  NCD offers two types of CVD diamond coating based on the size of the diamond grains.  The micro crystalline diamond coating offers performance where a rougher diamond finish is needed, while the nano crystalline diamond coating maintains a smooth diamond surface.  The coating thickness can be customized based on customer needs, but is typically in the range of 1 micron to 8 microns thick.

TriboGrade DLC Coating

NCD Technologies’ Diamond like Carbon coating is the next best thing when it comes to diamond on tools.  It is affordable yet still offers an improvement in performance over an uncoated tool while cutting non-ferrous materials.  NCD employs a proprietary plasma-based process to create next generation DLC coatings on a variety of tool materials, geometries and sizes.  Thickness of the coating can be optimized for particular applications, but is typically in a range of .5 micron to 2 microns thick.
