Diamond Saw Blades

How Diamond Blades Work

How Do Diamond Blades Work?

Diamond blades can be engineered to cut a variety of materials and can be made to meet specifications for cutting speed, life of the blade, or cost. Considering the variables, one supplier we work with at White Cap has over one million recipes for diamond blades!

Diamond segments are made with synthetic diamond crystals of different sizes and shapes, which are blended and cast together in a matrix of metal powders (the bond). Segments are attached to round metal blade cores with different processes such as sintering (casting), laser welding, brazing, or types of plating.

Diamond blades don’t actually “cut” the material, but rather grind away using exposed surface diamonds that are held in the bond. Eventually the diamonds fracture and as the bond wears, new diamonds are exposed. This process continues until the segment is worn down to the core.
