The Perfect Solution for Valve Body Machining

Valve body machining for fluid power components requires high accuracy tooling. In addition this family of tools may be very complex in design given the variety of ports in the fluid power industry.

This requires competent tool designers that understand the details associated with the valve body machining process. It also requires the full understanding of the types of materials involved which may vary from extruded aluminum to die cast aluminum to cast iron. Precorp has the necessary knowledge to design and manufacture tooling for the fluid power industry. They understand the factors that influence tool performance in these operations such as coolant flow, edge preparation etc. In addition with Precorp vein technology, tool designs for valve body machining may be achieved using PCD that are impossible using traditional PCD tool manufacturing methods. With over 20 years of experience in this field, Precorp is the right partner when looking to design engineered cutting tool solutions for a new valve body project.

THE POLYCRYSTALLINE DIAMOND (PCD) PROCESS

PRECORP’s PCD process is the method for making unique shaped diamond edges which enables the creation of innovative diamond tooling solutions for common and special problems.
STEP 1
A carbide blank is slotted and filled with diamond powder.
STEP 2
The carbide blank is inserted into one of Precorp’s high pressure, high temperature presses and subjected to 2,700º F and 876,000 psi. In this process the diamond powder is compressed and the diamond crystals are bonded to each other and to the carbide blank.
STEP 3
The PCD nib is then brazed to a solid carbide shank. The braze is located sufficiently away from the tip of the tool to avoid any potential thermal damage. This allows the use of a high temperature high strength braze joint between the nib and the carbide shank.
STEP 4
The drill geometry is ground to produce the finished PCD tool. This patented process allows for many tool geometries that are impractical and/or impossible using conventional PCD insert processes
