Product Description

We tip carbide inserts with Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) or Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN).  CBN is used mostly in producing hard turns on ferrous materials.PCD, harder than CBN, is used for cutting many different composites and non-ferrous materials.Diamond tipped inserts last substantially longer than carbide.Retip and regrind service offered for other manufacturers’ tools as well!
