SMART CUT Metal Bond Dicing Blades vs. Resin Bond Dicing Blades


The bond most widely used with diamond dicing blades is a resin bond. It is made of a tough polymer formed to hold the diamond particles to the rim of the dicing blade (tar in a solid form). Resin-bonded dicing blades remove material quickly. However, most resin bond dicing blades wear too fast. They also require frequent dressing (truing) to hold their form.

A stronger bond type is a sintered (metal bond). Metal Bond dicing blades offer longer life than resin bond dicing blades, and can be operated at higher speeds. 

Longer Life. SAVE UP TO 650% per cut. - 1 dicing blade with SMART CUT technology may last 6 to 10 of your conventional dicing blades put together. Thinner blades allow less loss of material. Start saving money today. Find out how…

More Consistent Performance - Metal Bond & Hybrid Bond Dicing Blades with SMART CUT technology are more durable than resin bond blades. Their heavy duty construction is designed to minimize and prevent blade wreckage. And unlike resin bond dicing blades, SMART CUT dicing blades require significantly less dressing. This provides 2 very distinct advantages:

1.) blade will not loose its roundness or shape - A resin bond, is really tar in a solid form. And in many cases, must be constantly dressed. Constant dressing often results in blade loosing its roundness and becoming oval shaped. SMART CUT technology resolves this problem, by orienting diamonds inside a very soft metal matrix,  so that every diamond is better able to participate in the cutting action. THE RESULT: 

  • minimum blade dressing 

  • consistent cutting speed 

  • minimum chipping

2.) no material contamination & deformation - A resin bond must remain  very fragile in order to expose new diamonds. For this reason, strong and high quality diamonds cannot be used in a resin bond. High quality diamonds are harder than a resin bond matrix, and would soon disintegrate the bond that keeps them in place. For this reason, diamonds that are used in a resin bond are poor to medium quality. Most of them disintegrate or fall out of the bond, before they have a chance of being used. The problem with this approach is these diamonds fall into the material being dicing, causing unwanted contamination. Find out more ...
