Temperature Characterization for Nano-Polishing of PCD Composites
This paper discusses the temperature characterization for nano-polishing of polycrystalline diamond composites (PCDCs) by combined experimental and theoretical modelling. It was found that a higher polishing pressure-speed combination results in a higher temperature rise and material removal rate. To optimize the nano-polishing of PCDCs and achieve a surface roughness of Ra = 50 nm, the interface temperature at polishing needs to be maintained at an appropriate level.
