Study and Application on CVD Diamond Tools
Diamond film made by adopting the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) technology is a promising superhard material. The mechanical and physical properties of CVD diamond is between natural diamond and hot press polycrystalline diamond. The cutting tools made by CVD diamond can machine many kinds of material, such as nonferrous metals, non metallic materials and composites. CVD diamond is classified as thin and thick films, and the thick film cutting tools are widely used. However, the superhard cutting tools cannot be applied to the cutting of iron family metal and molybdenum (Mo). In this paper, data and curves on machining test of CVD diamond cutting tools are listed and then analyzed.
