    XIAMEN DIAMOND TOOLS CO.,LTD manufactures precision diamond tools for a large variety of applications, materials, and industries.
    Metal Bonded Diamond Tools are “impregnated” with diamonds. This means that selected diamonds are mixed and sintered with specific metal alloys (such as iron, cobalt, nickel, bronze, and over 200 other components in various combinations). To achieve the best cutting performance possible on any materials such as sapphire, glass, granite, tile and etc. The metal bond surrounding the diamonds must wear away to continuously keep re-exposing the diamonds for the diamond tool to continue cutting. Diamond is the hardest material known to man kind. When used on tools, diamond grinds away material on micro (nano) level.
    If the tool becomes overheated, the metal bond does not wear away, instead it “glazes over” the diamond. Hence coating or covering the diamond. The metal bond then becomes the cutting agent rather than the diamond. Generating more heat. The diamond tool will eventually chip the material or break it, due to excessive heat build up in material. Same heat may damage the diamond tool itself, by causing heat cracks in the diamond section.
    This has been a frequent problem with most conventional diamond tools. Much of this has been resolved with the introduction of SMART CUT technology. Advanced technology, that redefines the standard in cutting and drilling. Diamonds are oriented and evenly distributed inside the metal matrix, so that every diamond is better able to participate in the cutting action.
