As standard on all Walter Helitronic Power Diamond and Diamond Evolution two-in-one tool erosion and grinding machines, Fine Pulse Technology, by Walter Ewag UK, a member of the United Grinding Group, is the result of progressive improvements to the machines’ redesigned generator. Enhancements have also been made to other machine design elements, Walter Ewag UK reports.

Marked differences to PCD tools of 10-micron grain type that have been eroded by other machines can be seen with the naked eye: the surface finish is like that of a polished (ground) tool – and even coarse-grained PCD types can be fine-finished with perfect surface qualities.

PCD tool providers can achieve superb levels of tool surface quality and cutting edge within similar processing times as before, the company says. Also, subsequent steps in production can be eliminated because no re-sharpening or polishing is required.

Walter Ewag UK adds that the Fine Pulse Technology development is the result of Walter’s constant quest to ensure that its tool erosion concept meets the increasing demands being made on PCD tools in terms of quality and service life, as well as price and production time.
