Industry Uses for Diamond Saw Blades
CDT Launches New Website
Diamond saw blades have many industry applications from healthcare to aerospace. Proper cutting, shaping and developing these materials is essential.
Dressing or Truing: What’s the Difference?
CDT is proud to announce the launch of our new website cdtusa.net where you can find product information, industry tips, upcoming trade shows and more.
Breaking ground on new state-of-the-art facility
Although sometimes known as conditioning, any time a grinding wheel is mounted on a machine it must be both trued and dressed to produce satisfactory work.
Why Continental Diamond Tool?
CDT is breaking ground on a $12 million expansion that will result in 77 new jobs in New Haven, Indiana. Facility to be completed by the end of 2017.
At Continental Diamond Tool, we pride ourselves on not only industry-leading product, but customer service and lead time at the most cost effective price.
What Feed & Speed do I run the wheel?
Superabrasive grinding wheels last longer, grind faster, cut cleaner, leave a better finish and create a sharper edge. The real question is—Why not?
How do I dress my grinding wheel?
High-speed grinding wheels, like the CBN grinding wheel and diamond wheel can increase a manufacturer’s production rates, improve quality and reduce costs.
Which Dressing Tool is Right for You?
Diamond dressing tools are essential to keep grinding wheels true and free from particle buildup. This enhances grain exposure and abrades away some bond.
How do Superabrasives compare to conventional abrasives?
Use our dressing tools to ensure that your diamond grinding wheel will perform at maximum efficiency, trouble-free, and enjoy a long, sustainable life.
What bond is best for my application?
Each wheel type has their place in manufacturing, there are materials that superabrasive wheels will not grind and there are material that conventional wheels will not grind. It all comes down to material hardness. For materials harder than 45 RHC, a superabrasive wheel is the most cost effective option. Superabrasive wheels do not wear away like conventional wheels do, therefore your shop stays cleaner and the air your employees breathe is much cleaner.
What are the benefits of plated vs. bonded?
With superabrasives, several variables are considered to determine the correct bond for the application, such as material, hardness, grit and many others.
