6C Tools - Technology


6C Tools PCD and PCBN products are manufactured solely by short- and ultrashort-pulsed laser ablation. Compared to conventional methods - grinding and spark erosion - this technology allows for a particularly gentle material removal. Avoiding damage caused by mechanical influences during grinding or binder depletion during spark erosion significantly increases the wear resistance of 6C Tools products. The force- and wear-free nature of laser processing allows 6C Tools to combine hard tool materials with high precision and good surface quality at a new level of geometric complexity.



6C Tools products are manufactured from solid polycrystalline diamond (PCD) and polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN). Only material grades with best quality from leading manufacturers are applied. The application of laser technology for the tool manufacturing allows for the choice of the best-suited PCD and PCBN grades without trade-offs in favor of better machinability by grinding or spark erosion. This advantage and the comprehensive experience of the 6C Tools team regarding the selection and handling of these materials ensures the best solution for your application.
