50 Years Borazon™ – CBN Grinding Wheels … and another Anniversary for Pioneer LACH DIAMOND

09.12.2019

In 1969, during the spring tradeshow in Hanover, LACH DIAMOND was the first manufacturer worldwide to demonstrate the grinding of HSS and high-alloy steel on a tool grinding machine.

The experts were amazed – because it was the first time they saw HSS (high speed steel) chips “produced” during grinding…

At the same time, the first CBN grinding wheel for dry grinding of an HSS milling cutter had its premiere. These were the beginnings of LACH DIAMOND’s grinding wheels first known as Borazon™ – a trademark of General Electrics, at that time a manufacturer of super-abrasives: K-MX for resinoid bonds, Bz-Mx for metal bonds. 

Today, in 2019, with a view to the international GrindTec tradeshow in Augsburg, from March 18thto 21st, 2020, LACH DIAMOND offers a proven selection of conventional diamond dressing tools, dressing rolls and diamond and CBN grinding wheels as well as trendsetting developments which were in recent years advertised under the slogan “Future for Today”.

After 50 years of Borazon™– originally advertised as the abrasive of a new era – the unchallenged culmination of success was the metal-bond profile grinding wheel »contour-profiled« – a time and cost killer for production grinding of high-alloyed steel, regarding profiles.

To date, LACH DIAMOND has not only solved unimaginable grinding tasks, but has also developed a special electrical discharge (EDG) profiling machine for regrinding even the most precise concave and convex profiles of 2-4 µ. It is available for service and for resale.
