The bearing area of PCD shaving dies support shaved wire materials against the vibration, the wire surface shaved by a PCD die is much better than that shaved by a TC die.
Shaving Dies with Tungsten Carbide(TC) insert are widely used for shaving application. But TC shaving dies haven't performed well relatively for lifetime, the shaved surface and high-precision controlled. To use polycrystalline diamond(PCD) for shaving is a better choice. It has proven to provide a superior surface finish and improved consistency for different wire materials.
The lifetime of PCD shaving dies provide 20 to 80 times (depending on materials) longer tool life than TC shaving dies. The long life reduces the setup time of exchange dies.
Advantages of PCD Shaving dies: long lifetime, good consistency, high wear resistance and impact resistance.
