Diamond Drill Bit

Diamond drill bits are commonly referred to diamond drill, which act as one type of the advanced cutting tools in the machine tool industry to cut the extra hard work piece materials.

Most diamond drill bits are designed and developed with diamond grain materials which are fixed on the cutting sides of the cutting tool units through bonding materials. The ingredients of bonding materials may be complicated to analyze, while the overall goal of the substance is the same: To achieve fixed diamond attachment for cutting purposes. 

Hardness Scales and Levels of Diamonds

Based on the Mohs scale of hardness regarding all the materials people have found, the hardness of diamonds is at the highest level as the 10 level, marking diamonds as the hardest objects in the known world we know. As diamond is the hardest material, diamond drill bits are equipped with many advantages if they are compared with other cutting tools made with ordinary abrasive grains, and the cutting effects are even superior to corundum and carbide silicon tools. 

Diamond Tools used as Diamond Drill Bits

In the cutting phase application of the machine tool industry, there are several subsidiary sectors in the machine tool usages. Those applications are things such as machinery items, components, accessories, and tooling parts.

For most users, cutting based machine tools are designed to turn, drill, mill, and other cutting operations which all utilize cutting tools as the means to achieve the operation. The inventory of cutting tools is a large and profound category that expands to a very wide scale but with specific limitations. For people who need to process super hard metal materials, they will add diamond tools as the tools installed on the shanks connected to the spindle of the milling machines, or the live tools stations on the power turrets. Diamond drill bits are of such kind of tools. 

Other Tools Besides Diamond Drill Bits

An end mill diamond tool is a cutting tool which is a type of milling cutter, which is the hardest cutting tool used in industrial milling applications. Diamond tool end mills are distinguished from the drilling bit in its application, geometry, and production. Meanwhile, a drilling item can only cut in the axial direction, while a milling item it can generally cut in all axial directions, though some cannot cut axially in certain working circumstances. Practically speaking, diamond tool end mills are used in milling applications such as profile milling, tracer milling, and face milling of the extraordinary hard work pieces. In the market, there is a broad category of the diamond tool ends and face milling tools exist, such as center-cutting and non-center-cutting diamond tools and they are all capable of hard material processing.

Diamond Drill Bits Installations

Diamond drill bits are convenient cutters that are often installed onto the high speed drilling machines. A high speed drilling machines installed with diamond drill bits is a highly developed machine tool model that can deal with many precision machining tasks of hard work pieces with its own rather than sharing the processing works with other machine tools.

Some machine centers can also do the drilling works, and some milling centers, though not as high level as machine centers, they are also capable of drilling tasks. The development of milling center was begun from milling machines at the mid of the last century and since then, the development of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry, and after that, machine centers are widely applied in all kinds of industries, contributing a wide range of business profits. In regard to the milling process, it is the process of machining that utilizes spinning tools to remove work piece materials by advancing a tool into one or several work pieces and the working mechanism is like the drilling movements. 

Diamond Drill Bits’ Machining Directions

Directions of machining of the tools can be different. The machining method of diamond drill bits could be done on different directions as the moving axis turns. Besides milling process, drilling can also cover a wide variety of various operations and range a wide scale from single tiny parts to heavy and large drilling operation tasks just like the end milling and conventional milling tools.

For instance, end mill diamond tools can be installed on the turret systems as the diamond drill bits. Besides the power turret, tool magazine and the automatic too changers are also the best sellers in the tool cutting combination. Many of the tooling suppliers that offer tool magazine and ATC system promise the optimal T to T duration to customers based on their working cycle time engineering study. These works can help manufacturers keep up with customers requirements.
