PCD stands for polycrystalline diamond, which in this instance is diamond tooling which is designed, manufactured and serviced in conjunction with a well-established and experienced partner company to Gerrymet.
A diamond tool contains diamond grains that are usually fixed with a bonding material into the functional parts of the tools.
Whilst PCD tools are becoming increasingly popular, and are generally recommended when cutting/machining abrasive materials, it should be noted that if it doesnt work with tungsten carbide, it is highly unlikely to work with a PCD tool.
In short, PCD tipped tooling gives a significant increase in tool life between sharpening, compared to tungsten carbide tooling.
