When you read this, 40 years will have already passed since the discovery of spark erosion for machining polycrystalline cutting materials. Lach Diamant named this process “spark grinding,” which accompanied the development of proprietary machines. Polycrystalline diamond tools conquered a multiple-application market traditionally reserved for carbides. Diamonds, baked under pressure and heat during synthesis, made this possible.
Rock stars have been smashing guitars for decades, few with more enthusiasm than Swedish-born guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen. Global engineering company Sandvik decided to test its cutting-edge techniques by building the world’s first all-metal, unbreakable guitar and letting Malmsteen unleash his smashing skills.
The fact that polycrystalline diamonds (PCD) could “show profile” in October 1978 could be attributed to random chance, but could it have something to do with “luck”? But how did golf professional Tiger Woods answer when a journalist pointed out that he often had a lot of luck during his games? “The more I train, the more luck I have.”
It becomes increasingly important as the table travel is increased. Ambient temperature changes are one obvious source of thermal expansion. As the positioning table warms, its constituent parts undergo expansion, at a specific rate for any material. Accordingly, to permit any two users to agree on what constitutes an “accurate” positioning system, all critical dimensional measurements world-wide are understood to take place at 20 degrees C (68 degrees F).
Chip Bobbert eyes a sheet of shiny aluminum that is several feet long and crimped on one end. He guesses that this was once the backsplash of a restaurant kitchen. Nearby, he spots another piece of metal with a square opening at the center. When he mentions that it likely once framed the entry to a roof or ventilation shaft, the shape of the piece makes sense. He then picks up a softball-size chunk of dense stainless steel. With an intricate series of holes shooting through the thickest part, it looks like a central piece of a complex engine. “Some of this stuff is crazy,” Bobbert said, pointing out the holes. “If you look at the precision machining, somebody paid thousands of dollars for that.”
It is October 1978. On Oct. 13, my discovery at the former Matra company in Frankfurt that PCD can be eroded by means of electric sparks was registered at the patents office. In October 2018, we looked back at 40 years of experience in the application of spark erosion for manufacturing and versatile application with polycrystalline blades of PCD- and PCBN-tipped tools.
Between 1974 and 1976, polycrystalline cutting materials, such as PCD and PCBN, could show their potential for the first time. As a result of the hardness of diamond, combined with the sharpness for machining tasks, the superiority of PCD was displayed early on when turning, milling and drilling.
Materials scientists at Duke University and UC San Diego have discovered a new class of carbides expected to be among the hardest materials with the highest melting points in existence. Made from inexpensive metals, the new materials may soon find use in a wide range of industries from machinery and hardware to aerospace.
We are in part three of our article series “Poly–poly–or what?” The series looks back at the time between autumn 1974 and the Hanover Trade Show in the spring of 1975. Dealing with this new cutting material “polycrystalline diamonds” (PCD) was fascinating for all of us; after the presentation at the first Hanover Trade Show in 1973, each day brought new insights for production and for different applications.
While looking through back issues of Carbide Engineering from the late 1950s, I came across an article about HSS cutting tools that reminded me of an article we published in this year’s August issue of Cutting Tool Engineering. (Editor’s note: Carbide Engineering combined with Cutting Tool Engineering starting with the January 1961 issue and dropped Carbide Engineering starting in April of that year. The publication began in 1948 as a small pamphlet called Carbide Tips, but I’m not aware of any existing copies of any issues.)
The introduction of our Borazon CBN grinding wheel was still in full swing when I received information from General Electric in 1972 that a new cutting material would be coming soon. What could it be? Naturally all of us were curious!
3D Hubs releases its quarterly report that shows real world data on which CNC materials and surface finishes are requested the most by engineers globally.
U.S. machine shops are potentially underutilizing the machinability of brass by as much as 85 percent in their part processing operations, reports a recent study from the Copper Development Association Inc. The research shows that machine shops can and should be machining the material at significantly faster feeds and speeds – often five to 20 times faster – than they do to increase productivity and profitability.
Seventy years ago when the Society of Carbide Engineers launched the trade magazine that eventually became Cutting Tool Engineering as its official publication, the articles primarily covered carbide cutting tools. After all, the association advertised that those who were engaged in studying, using, supervising the use of or furthering the use of carbides were eligible for membership.

The coating provides incredible resistance to aggressive media and liquid hydrocarbons, and can also be used as a diffusion barrier to gases.
EcoShield® 386 FD Water Based Micro Corrosion Inhibiting Coating is a force-dry version of Cortec’s top water-based anticorrosion coating, EcoShield® VpCI®-386. As such, EcoShield® 386 FD offers excellent corrosion protection at 1.5-3.0 mils (37.5-75 µm) DFT (dry film thickness). The advantage is that EcoShield® 386 FD force-dries in only 5-10 minutes at 150 °F (54 °C) and has good hot hardness, which keeps the hot coated parts from sticking together before they can cool down.
This media has a patented shape without any flat, parallel surface areas. On the one hand this unique design prevents media lodging in the work pieces, which can occur particularly in case of complex work pieces. Such lodged media can severely affect the finishing process and must frequently be removed by hand. On the other hand, the shape with its rounded surface areas allows the surface refinement of work pieces, which to-date could not be handled by mass finishing at all or only with very complicated operational setups. This includes components with difficult-to-reach surface areas like tight radii, undercuts, notches and slits, which can frequently be found in stamped and bent components.
Operating at the optimum temperature range of 200° – 210°F as the original Tru Temp XL, TRU TEMP 2nd GEN makes it easy to use in-house and operator friendly. The chemistry is easy to manage and contains no EPA regulated metals, so rinse waters are generally sewerable by neutralizing the pH with a typical discharge range of pH 7-11. Additionally, reaching this pH range takes only 20% of the acid than other processes. Since TRU TEMP 2nd GEN requires no effluent treatment, the initial capital investment is only about half of other blackening finishes.

VGrind 260, VGrind Neon and VGrind Argon – these are the names of the three new tool grinding machines from the sharpening specialist VOLLMER. They were presented for the first time at the GrindingHub 2022 trade fair in Stuttgart.
A start-up company near Chicago designs and fabricates custom tool foam inlays for toolboxes, workstations, travel cases and reusable packaging. Kaiser Manufacturing says its process fills the need for a custom solution that is superior to hand-cut tool foam in both function and appearance.
The S36 has a fixed grinding head, with grinding wheel angles of 0, 15 or 30 degrees available. The distance between centers is 650mm and the maximum workpiece weight is 150kg. Proven components have been used in the machine. These include a Granitan® machine bed and a workhead with high-precision roller bearings.
The new duo of VOLLMER grinding machines designed for machining carbide-tipped circular saw blades, is made up of the CS 860 and CSF 860.
Featured on new GF Machining Solutions’ CUT P Pro Series wire EDMs, the iWire function works in tandem with the company’s Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS), both of which are part of the company’s Uniqua control.
The volume reduction of aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, steel and other types of metal chips represents a significant cost savings in labor, disposal, transport and storage. Jorgensen/SFH single and double-shaft shredders efficiently reduce chip size in preparation for centrifuging or briquetting. The volume reduction resulting from implementing a shredder also lessens the frequency of bin removal from a machine, giving a shop’s employees additional time to focus on other more productive work. Jorgensen/SFH offer a variety of shredder size options constructed per a customer’s material and desired chip output needs.
These guide rails are assembled from precisely matched components: linear guide rails GN 2492, the matching cam roller carriages GN 2494 and the separately available wipers of TPU plus the individual rollers with three different bore types. The exceptionally stable guide rails are produced in a rolling process and can be mounted using the typical bore pattern, even up to a rail length of 97.64 in (2480 mm).
The Android touchscreen, pre-loaded with direct access to 1sourcelive, tracks inventory usage in real-time, triggering automated replenishment when inventory reaches a set minimum level.
The PACKOUT Tool Tray features Stack or Store functionality, providing modular connectivity with any PACKOUT solution and storage within the Rolling Tool Chest, Rolling Tool Box, XL Tool Box, or the Large Tool Box. In addition, the Tool Tray has a customizable internal layout with Quick-Adjust Dividers, creating up to six separate storage compartments and allowing users to configure the layout that works for them. With a metal reinforced handle and a 25lb weight capacity, the tool tray can easily transport tools and materials around the jobsite, in transit, and in the shop. 
The FlyMarker® mini 65/30 4.3" touch has a large 4.3" color display and a touch user interface, which, thanks to intuitive software and a newly designed main level, makes programming easier and faster. Not only has the visual appearance of the FlyMarker® mini 65/30 4.3" touch changed, but a faster processor with 4 GB memory capacity has also been implemented.
The machine foot GN 36 uses the weight of the machine to create a very stable and robust connection between the threaded stud and the foot. The threaded stud is not connected to the foot plate. The second machine foot GN 37 from Winco also has a central fastening hole running clear through. This allows use of an anchor bolt. The anchor secures the foot to the floor, preparing it for lateral loads.
As an external loader, STUDER roboLoad measures only 59.06" (1.50 m) wide: half the width of the machine itself. This saves valuable shop floor space, and yet the system offers plenty of room for workpieces manually loaded on six trays – each measuring 42.52" x 12.6” (1080 mm x 320 mm) – within a comparatively small work area. 
VpCI-277 can provide corrosion protection for up to two years of indoor storage or during domestic or international shipments when combined with VpCI packaging materials. The product leaves a dry, non-tacky, virtually undetectable film on the metal surface. The use of rust preventatives to preserve metals during storage and transportation has traditionally been a hazardous and messy process in which greasy rust preventatives must be applied and removed several times. This is because metal work-pieces risk flash corrosion as they frequently sit in temporary storage awaiting the next step in the manufacturing or assembly process.
