Dessau Diamond Tools - Carbide Knives and Blades

Synthetic Diamond Dressing Tools

MCD (Mono-Crystaline Diamond) and CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) are free-cutting, fully synthetic diamond products. Contrary to natural diamond, MCD and CVD exhibit excellent thermal conductivity which facilitates heat dissipation and provides consistent dressing performance and wear characteristics.

Serveral Blades are available to suit a variety of grinding applications.

Dessau MCD Dressing Tools are primarily used for dressing submicron crystal ceramic abrasives such as 81A, 83A, 85A, 93A, 5SG, etc. (a.k.a. ‘SG’). MCDs also provide good results when dressing silicon carbides. MCD is not recommended for dressing aluminum oxide wheels as these abrasives are not aggressive enough to maintain the free-cutting ability of MCD. Dessau CVD Dressing Tools are used for dressing conventional Aluminum Oxide wheels.

Dessau Dressing Blades can be used for straight or profile dressing, as illustrated below.

Cylindrical profile dressing applications:
MCD inserts can be arranged in parallel or at 45 degrees into the blade dressing blank. On the basis of crystallography, it may be inferred that "parallel arrangement" is more wear resistant and more effective when dealing with "hard" wheel bonds. When dealing with "softer" wheel bonds, the 45 degree arrangement should lead to improved self-sharpening of the MCD.

Use a blade with no more than three inserts, as more may lead to profile distortion. Also, use parallel mounted inserts of a minimum cross-section of 0.6mm such that the edges will hold during profiling.
