OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS, USAGE AND DATA
FOR POLYCRYSTALLINE DIAMOND

Operating instructions for "PCD" blank tools can be determined by using the accompanying tables or present speeds, feeds, tool design, etc. as a starting point.  Production can be improved by making adjustments as experience is gained.  The following guidelines can be followed.

Coolant should be used whenever possible to promote free cutting, reduce heat and flush abrasive chips away form the finished surface.

Always handle "PCD" tools with care to prevent damage to the cutting edge.

The depth of cut can be limited by the size of the "PCD" tool.

Components of the tool assembly must be free of any dirt particles which could prevent proper seating and support.

To insure ample clearance, cut on or below center when turning, and cut on or above
center when boring.

Milling operations should always be done in a climb mode to keep the "PCD" tool in compression, its strongest physical attribute.

Higher speeds reduce cutting forces and are advantageous if the machine has sufficient power and rigidity.
