PCD/PCBN Tools

  • Relapping:  Tool edges will wear in application, relapping (reshapening) these edges will ensure optimum tool performance.
  • Reforming (rewiring):  Complicated or badly damaged forms can be reformed (rewired) to the correct form and edge quality.
  • Retipping: Manufacturing costs are relatively high, if economical we will remove worn or damaged tips and replace with new .

Electroplating Tools

  • Replating  Worn or damaged plated tools can be stripped and replated with a new diamond or CBN  layer. If the form is damaged DSA has the facility to reform before replating.

Dressing Tools 

  • Resetting: Single point tools can have up to 6 working points, to ensure the maximum tool life we offer a reset service, diamonds are removed assessed and reset if economical viable.
  • Refacet: Some applications require an extremely sharp point with very accurate positioning which can be achieved by faceting the diamond point.
  • Relapping: Chisel and Cone points will wear in application The flanks and radii can be relapped to ensure optimum tool performance.

Grinding wheels

  • Redressing: Diamond and CBN grinding wheels can be redressed to refresh and clean the wheel surface; we can also chamfer and radius if necessary.
  • Rerimming: Diamond and CBN impregnated rims can be removed and new rims glued or bolted back to the wheel body saving wheel body manufacture.
