  • Allotrope
    Two or more different physical forms in which an element can exist. Graphite and diamond are allotropes of carbon.
  • cBN
    Is the second hardest material after diamond; particularly suitable for machining ferrous materials.
  • EDG
    Electric Discharge Grinding is a process similar to electric discharge machining (EDM), except that, a rotating electrode is used.
  • EDM
    Electric Discharge Machining is a manufacturing process where material is removed from a workpiece by a series of rapidly recurring electric discharges (sparks). These sparks occur between two electrodes separated by a dielectric liquid.
  • Laser
    An acronym for:
    Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
    Lasers cut by focusing the output of a high-power laser on or near the surface of the material to be cut.
  • PCD
    PolyCrystalline Diamond.
  • PCBN
    Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride.
  • PCP
    PolyCrystalline Products i.e. PCD, PCBN and PDC.
  • PDC
    Polycrystalline Diamond Cutters - a term used in the oil well bit industry.
  • Superhard material
    Superhard material is a material with a hardness value exceeding 40GPa.
  • Tetrahedral
    In tetrahedral molecular geometry, an atom is located at the center with 4 substituents located at the corners of a tetrahedron. The bond angles are 109.5° when all 4 substituents are the same, as in methane and diamond.
  • WEDM
    Wire Electric Discharge Machining.
