Freeze granulation is today utilized by market leaders in manufacturing of diamond tools such as diamond wheels using PCD – Polycrystalline Diamonds. Homogeneous distribution of the active component, diamond particles, in the wheels is crucial for the cutting performance and tool life.
By using freeze granulation you will bring your slurry including diamonds, fillers and binders into granules with homogenously distributed diamond particles. The superb homogeneity results in improved cutting performance and tool life of the pressed and sintered advanced diamond composite product. By adding diamonds prior to granulation, the risk for agglomerated diamonds is minimized in comparison to when they are added after a granulation.
