PRODUCT DIAMOND BURNISHING TOOL
The Cogsdill Diamond Burnishing Tool is designed to produce high quality, low micro-inch burnished finishes on shafts, large bores, and faces.With most metals, a turned or ground part with a properly prepared 40 to 60 micro-inch finish can be burnished to a 4 to 8 micro-inch finish in seconds. Cast iron can usually be burnished to an 8 to 15 micro-inch finish.
Cogsdill Diamond Burnishing Tools can burnish virtually any size stock; from carbon steels to tool steels, cast iron to alloys, and most ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The premium quality diamond burnishing insert is polished and contoured to provide superior finishes and excellent tool life.
Since set up and operation is relatively simple, no special operator skills are required. Diamond Burnishing Tools are versatile; various models are designed for use in the tool post of a manual lathe, automatic, or in CNC equipment. The tools can be used on both large and small diameters, and are ideal for short production runs.The Diamond Burnishing Tool can produce quality finishes on interrupted surfaces, such as a shaft with a keyway or the face of a flange having a series of bolt holes.
While the tool must be used with coolant, no special coolant is required. Straight oils, soluble oils, and synthetic coolants can be used to provide the necessary lubrication.
How it worksThe Cogsdill Diamond Burnishing Tool is mounted in the tool post of the desired machine. The diamond burnishing point is brought into contact with the workpiece at the centerline of the part and perpendicular to the surface being finished. The tool is then fed into the workpiece an additional .002 or .003 inch (.05 or .08mm) to allow the diamond insert to become disengaged from the stop in the holder. The spring, with its preload, forces the diamond against the workpiece. The tool is then fed along the surface of the rotating workpiece to produce a mirror-like finish.
Replaceable diamond insert is polished and contoured for superior finishes and long tool life.
