Technology that redefines the standard in cutting and drilling. Diamonds are
oriented inside matrix so that every diamond is better able to participate in
cutting, drilling, or diamond machining action.
In 1998 UKAM Industrial Superhard Tools, Division
of LEL Diamond Tools International, Inc. Developed a solution to this
problem. A new breakthrough called “SMART CUT technology” in
manufacturing precision diamond tools.
SMART CUT will greatly improve your diamond tool cutting,
drilling, grinding, and lapping efficiency SMART CUT™ is an ADVANCED
technology that redefines the standard in manufacturing diamond tools.
Utilizing this technology a diamond tool manufacturer is capable of
orienting diamonds inside matrix so that every diamond is better able to
participate in cutting or drilling action. SMART CUT™
open bond design makes sure every diamond is in the right place and at the
right time, working where you need it most. You get maximum use of diamond
diamond concentration almost irrelevant. What most diamond tool manufacturers
used to do, and still do today is place
diamonds inside the metal matrix, with no control over diamond
distribution. The problem with this approach
is inconsistent diamond tool performance. Only about 40% of these
diamonds are able to participate in diamond machining action. The rest
fall out, become dull, or disintegrate before they have a chance of being
used. This factor causes the following problems:
One of the main
problems faced by diamond tool manufacturers worldwide involves properly
orienting and positioning diamonds inside bond matrix. Over the
decades there have been numerous attempts to solve the diamond and CBN
distribution problem. Unfortunately, none of the attempts have been proven
Current technologies are also
inadequate to provide effective control of diamond mesh size (grit size)
and concentration of variations on different parts of the same tool.
Current technologies also do not allow diamond distribution to be factored
in when manufacture a wheel specifically designed for individual material
property and structure.
99% diamond tool manufacturers still have no way or technology to evenly
control and distribute Diamond or CBN particles inside bond matrix, nor
properly position them to maximize their machining efficiency.
with Conventional Diamond Tools
distribution between each Diamond or CBN particles determines the work
load each diamond will perform. Improper distribution of diamond or CBN
particles typically leads to premature failure of diamond particles or
bond structure. If diamond or CBN particles are too close to one another,
some of these particles are redundant and provide little or no
assistance in cutting, drilling, grinding, or lapping. Excess
diamonds particles increase the cost of manufacturing diamond tools, due
to high cost diamond and CBN powder.
Yet have no
effect in increasing performance. In fact excess and non performing diamond or CBN particles reduce the
diamond tools overall performance and efficiency by blocking up the
passage of debris from material being machined. In many cases these
excessive diamond particles play a major rule in decreasing the useful
life of your diamond tool. Conventional diamond tools have been suffering
from these type of problems and inefficiencies for over 50 years.

diamonds in the new layer are immediately activated, substituting the already
used up diamond layer. The SMART CUT™ Diamond Bond makes sure every
diamond is in the right place and at the right time, working where you need it
newly exposed diamonds don’t effect diamonds working already inside the

Advanced Coolant System
diamond tools manufactured utilizing SMART CUT™ technology, are built
with a special open bond design that promotes a better coolant system. Air and
water flows freely through the diamond bond, providing extra coolant, greater
conductor of heat and thus increased product longevity. Instead of heat
generated in a few places, it is evenly distributed and hence minimized.
Easy to Use
We made a science out of making your work easier. SMART
CUT™ technology are easier to use than most conventional diamond products.
Thousands of sharp and high quality diamond particles metallurgically bonded to
alloy steel allow diamond tools with SMART CUT™ technology to
complete a job by applying little or no pressure. Freeing the user from
constantly having to dress and renew the diamond layer. SMART CUT™
technology makes any sophisticated job a simple one.

In most cases
diamond tools manufactured utilizing SMART CUT™ technology, will
outlast other conventional metal (sintered), resin, and nickel bonded diamond
tools. SMART CUT™ diamond tools are more sturdy than tools manufactured
with conventional technologies. Unlike many other resin or metal bonded diamond
tools, these will not dull and maintain its firm shape and bond configuration
all the way through the diamond tools life.
Controlled Diamond Concentration at different parts of diamond
Many times a metal bond diamond tool
requires different sizes of diamonds and different diamond concentrations to be
disposed at different parts on the same tool. Most diamond tools wear faster on
the edge or in front than the middle. Higher diamond concentrations are
preferred in these locations to prevent uneven wear and thus premature
By making the distribution of Diamond
or CBN particles uniform and in a predetermined pattern, tailored to individual
customer application. The work load can be evenly distributed to each diamond
particle. As a result a diamond tool with SMART
will machine material faster and its working life will be extended a
considerable amount of time. SMART CUT technology
promotes not only even diamond distribution. But strong diamond retention as
well. Allowing the diamond tool manufacturer to use of smaller diamond
particles. Small diamond particles will improve surface finish, and optimized
performance of each diamond particle.
