SAPPHIRE TOOLING



Braemar manufactures metal bond diamond tooling for a variety of uses.  We will design your tools to give you the best possible result.  Since diamond tools are designed and used for many applications each tool reacts differently due to heat, pressure, machine, coolant, operator, etc. Sapphire is an extremely hard material that can dull a diamond tool quite rapidly.  Using the correct bond along with the best possible diamond particles is necessary when grinding sapphire.  We have developed a metal bond that will result is higher yields, faster feed rates, and increased productivity.  Our "HPB" bond is used on tools that are 3.000" and smaller.  This bond is very hard yet free cutting when grinding sapphire.  Our "CPB" bond is used on larger tools, 3.000" and above. You will find that our HPB metal bond is extremely agressive and strong and will not crush or mushroom when pressure is applied.
CORE DRILLS
SAPPHIRE DIAMOND TOOLING FOR CORING
All of our diamond core drills are manufactured with our exclusive metal bond developed for high strength and longevity.  Braemar can build your diamond core drills to suit your exact needs with a quick turnaround that today's industries demand.  Our sizes range from .026" to 36" diameter with tolerance of (±.001") on 2" and under. We have the ability to mount core drills to your needs or the standard that is used at your facility.    Braemar diamond core drills can be made with natural or synthetic diamonds, sieved to the desired grit size, mixed with a metal matrix and bonded to a steel core.  The depth of diamond section is usually 1/4", or 3/8", other depth sizes can be made upon request.  Diamond  size can range from 60/80 to 270/320 grit.  Coarser grit sizes are used for faster stock removal without much concern for surface finish.
