Sumitomo's NF-DA2200 PCD Inserts for Non-Ferrous Materials
Mount Prospect, IL (November 18, 2002) - Sumitomo's NF-DA2200 Polyerystalline Diamond (PCD) insert NF-DA2200 possibly demonstrates the highest strength and wear resistant combination diamond non-ferrous cutting tool grade available in the industry today. With a transverse rupture strength equal to that of C7 cemented carbide, it performs best in both rough and finish machining of aluminum work pieces with the potential to replace carbide.
Sumitomo uses ultra-fine diamond grains in NF-DA2200, to ensure the sharpest cutting edge for high luster surface finishing with fewer burrs. This extremely strong cutting edge also results in superior chipping resistance, in milling applications. The added edge strength allows for a higher feed per tooth, so less inserts are required in a milling cutter.
Ideal for non-ferrous applications, NF-DA2200 can be used for rough and finish milling of aluminum wet or dry. The optimum size of PCD used in NF-DA2200 offers a less expensive alternative when machining non-ferrous materials. This new series has also proven itself excellent for interrupted and rough & finish turning applications.
