SMART CUT Dicing Blades vs. Conventional Dicing Blades



Simply,  the  diamond  blade  is  a  cutting  tool  which  has  exposed  diamond  particles  captured  in  a  metal  matrix  each with  a  small  cutting  edge. The  number  of  cutting  edges  which  is  determined  by  the  number  of  diamonds  (or concentration)  make  up  the  structure  of  the  diamond  blade,  along  with  its  matrix,  (metal  or  nickel  bond). The  size of  the  diamond  particle  will  have  a  direct  result  in  the  size  of  chip  you  get. The  thickness  of  the  blade  (diamond particle  plus  matrix)  will  determine  the  width  of  the  cut. Therefore,  blade  selection  along  with  feed  rate,  cutting speed,  and  depth  of  cut  will  ultimately  determine  the  blades  success.



What  most  diamond  tool  manufacturers  used  to do,  and  still   do  today   is  place  diamonds    inside  the  metal  matrix,  with  no  control  over diamond  distribution. The  problem  with  this   approach  is  inconsistent  performance. Only  40%  of  these  diamonds  are  able  to  participate  in  the  cutting  action. The  rest  fall out,  become  dull,  or  disintegrate  before  they have  a  chance  of  being  used. This  factor  causes the  following  problems:

Inconsistent  Cutting  Speed  &  Excessive Blade Dressing

After  a  few  dozen  cuts  the  blade,  cutting  speed  gradually  begins  to  slow  down. You  will notice  excessively  longer  cutting  speeds,  and saw  motor  bug  downs. And  since only  a  few  diamonds  participate  in  the  cutting action,  you  may  find  your self  applying  an increasing amount  pressure  just to  cut  the  same  amount  of  material. Without properly  orienting  the  diamonds,  conventional  blades  quickly  become  dull,  out of round. With   further  cutting  requiring  constant  blade  dressing,  in  order  to  expose  new  diamonds.

Excessive Heat Generation & Loss of  straight cutting capability

Constant blade dressing and pressure put forth on material, causes the blade to overheat and loose its tension. The blade starts to wobble and cut crocked (on the side). This is particularly true for smaller 
diameter, ultra thin blades. 


SMART CUT  is an advanced technology that redefines the standard in cutting and drilling. Setting a new standard  in  manufacturing  precision diamond blades. This technology  allows proper  position  and  orientation  of  diamond  inside  the  diamond  matrix. Making  sure  every    diamond  is  in  the  right  place  and  at  the  right  time,  working  where  you  need  it  most. (Please,  see  diagram ….)

maximum cutting performance 

each  diamond  works  like  a  small  horse. Diamonds  come  in  contact  with  the  material in  the  right  place  and  at  the  right  time,  working  where  you  need  them  most. You  get  the  maximum  use  out  of  diamond  and  bond. Some unique benefits & advantages of SMART CUT technology:

 no glazing 

requires minimal dressing, the bond renews itself.


faster cutting action 

Diamond Dicing Blades manufactured utilizing this technology are much more aggressive than your conventional blades. They cut faster, still leaving behind a smooth finish. 


longer lasting 

dicing blades manufactured utilizing SMART CUT technology, will outlast other metal (sintered), resin, and nickel bonded blades. SMART CUT diamond dicing blades are more sturdy than blades manufactured with conventional technologies. Unlike many other resin or metal bonded blades, these blades will not dull and maintain its firm shape and roundness all the way through the blades life.


superior coolant system

these dicing blades are completely impregnated with diamonds. Diamonds absorb excessive heat and tension generated by repeated use, promoting consistency in cut cleanness and smoothness. You will notice the difference in the quality of the cut these blades leave behind. 

There are other advantages of utilizing diamond dicing blades manufactured with the SMART CUT technology. The company  feels,  you will find it a significant breakthrough in the cutting field.

SMART CUT Difference

That's the difference you get out of every SMART CUT  product. The difference you can't see, but you will feel and highly appreciate.
