Improved Coating Adhesion
Our trademark pretreatment extends tool life and production efficiency by reducing the propensity for delamination of the coating during aggressive machining processes.
Decreased Coating Thickness
This innovative and extremely thin coating helps maintain the precise geometry and sharpness of the micro cutting tool, all the while preventing the cutting edge of the tool from becoming blunt or misshapen.
Increased Tool Strength
Unlike standard pretreatment processes that can weaken a micro tool, NCD’s proprietary pretreatment actually strengthens the tool, thereby extending the tool’s working life as well its overall consistency.
Increased Tool Life - 10-15x
Because tool life is longer, there is less downtime and fewer tool replacements. This equals better manufacturing efficiency and a more cost-effective production environment.
Increased Machine Speed - 2-10x
Increased machine speed allows more parts to be produced in less time, enabling higher productivity and competitiveness within the micro manufacturing arenas.
Improved Part Quality
Diamond coating reduces burring and chattering during machining processes, which results in higher quality part finishes, and allows for finer scale micro machining endeavors.
