Development of a Drum-Type Manufacturing Method for Electroplated Diamond Wire Tools
Diamond wires are widely used in cutting hard and brittle materials such as silicon, sapphire, etc. However, present low production efficiency of diamond wires causes their high cost. To solve the problem, a drum-type manufacturing method for electroplated diamond wire tools was developed. Multi diamond wire tools could be manufactured simultaneously at high speed with a single machine. Electroplating characteristics of developed method were evaluated. Additionally, composite electroplating experiments were carried out to find optimal conditions for manufacturing diamond wire tools.
