U-303 Professional  - THIN KERF

Metal Bond (Sintered) Diamond Lapidary Blades

5mm (.020")

Diamond Depth (Height)

U-303 Professional Diamond Blade is a UKAM Industrial premium quality blade with a very high diamond concentration. The Professional will provide smooth surface finish and is designed for cutting all types of lapidary materials (precious & semi precious stones) when waste must be held to a minimum and speed of cut is essential. The U-303 Professional series diamond blades last longer and will cut faster that ordinary notched rim, plated diamond blades. They can be used at maximum arbor speeds. This is the most inexpensive sintered (metal bond) blades & most wide used on market today.

Experienced operator skills are required for maximum performance. SMART CUT™ water soluble coolant or mineral oil is recommended, however water with a rust inhibitor can be used. A full diamond sintered blade. The 4" through 14" blades are continuous rim, the 16"  through 24" sizes are segmented rim blades. Designed for Lapidary Application Only. For other applications, consult us on correct blade to use.

The Diamond Blade by itself is perhaps the most important factor in your lapidary cutting operation.

Sintered (metal bonded) blades are the best investment you 

can make!  Although they may cost more than electroplated (nickel bond),

hot or cold rolled or some notched lapidary blades, sintered (metal bond) 

blades will provide best ROI (Return on Investment)  in terms of:

  • Longer Life

WHY SINTERED (METAL BOND) DIAMOND LAPIDARY BLADES?

Sintered (Metal bonded) diamond blades are "impregnated" with diamonds. Diamonds sintered and multiple (hundreds) layers of diamonds impregnated inside the metal matrix. Electroplated and other types of diamond blades for lapidary application have only one layer of diamond that stays on the surface. Diamonds in a sintered (metal bond) diamond blade are furnaces sintered in a matrix made of iron, cobalt, nickel, bronze, copper, tungsten,  alloys of these powders or other metals in various combinations. The compacted materials are then hot pressed or sintered to full density. Heating rate, applied pressure, sintering temperature and holding time, are all controlled according to the matrix composition. This means that selected diamonds are mixed and sintered with specific metal alloys to achieve the best cutting performance possible on any materials such as sapphire, agate, emerald, ruby, opal, petrified wood, glass, 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.

Sintered (metal bonded) diamond tools are recommended for cutting hard materials from 45 to 75 on Rockwell Scale (5 to 9.5 on mohs scale of hardness). It is more wear resistant and holds diamond well in place, usually producing the highest yield/cutting & best price per cut ratio. Metal Bond (sintered) diamond blades longer than other diamond bond blades such as electroplated (nickel bond), notched, or colled rolled blades. They wear evenly, and are known for their long life & consistency. Sintered (metal bonded) diamond blades are the latest technology available in Diamond Blades. And represent the BEST VALUE & PERFORMANCE PER CUT.

UKAM Industrial Superhard Tools is LEADER in manufacturing ULTRA THIN & HIGH PRECISION sintered (metal bond) diamond blades. Our products are used across the world in wide variety of industries & applications. UKAM Industrial is one of the companies behind the original THIN KERF Sintered (metal bond) diamond blades for lapidary application. Producing blades sold under "private label" for a number of well known equipment manufacturers.

Comparing SINTERED (METAL BOND) DIAMOND LAPIDARY BLADES to Other Bond Types

(electroplated, notched, hot or colled rolled blades)

Sintered (Metal Bonded) Blades               vs.    Other Diamond Bond Type Blades  

         - Hundreds layers of diamond                          - Single layer of diamond

        - Stands up well under aggressive conditions    - Cannot be dressed (in most cases)

       - Super smooth finish                           - Least Expensive

       - Longest lasting blade                         - Shortest Blade Life

       - Very Universal                                  - Cannot be used for a number of (ultra hard) materials

(work on ultra hard to soft materials)

       - Most cost effective

Sintered (metal bonded) blades are the best investment you can make!  Although they may cost more than electroplated (nickel bond), hot or colled rolled or some notched lapidary blades, sintered (metal bond) blades will more than pay for themselves in terms of:
 

Longer Life

Other Bond type blades may cost less, and at first glance may seem like the most cost effective alternative. However, they will cost you more in the long run. Depending on material and application, sintered (metal bonded) blades may last as much as 50 to 100 other diamond lapidary blade types put together. You can't get more life out of any other blade !!!  Instead of constantly putting blades on and off the saw, you will save money by using one blade. This means cost per cut, sintered (metal bond) blades are the best choice.

More Consistent performance & Faster Cutting Speed

Other Blade Types have only one layer of diamond coated on metal core. Diamonds sit only on the surface. When this diamond portion is peeled off, the blade will slow down, cut on the side (not cut straight) or stop working (cutting) altogether. While other blade types may provide acceptable level of performance softer lapidary materials such as topaz, turquoise, amethyst, and etc. They will immediately burn out on harder materials such as agates, petrified wood, sapphire and etc. Metal bonded blades are sintered and impregnated inside the metal matrix. Multiple (hundreds) layers of diamonds are impregnated inside the metal matrix. Unlike Blade Types, metal bond blades wear evenly, and are known for their consistency. You will get consistent cutting speed, and overall consistent performance from sintered (metal bonded) blades.
