A6 Friction polishing

Thermo-chemical-mechanical shape generating of diamond for micro forming tools

The objective of the research project “friction polishing” was to develop a technology which enables the final machining of laser shaped micro forming dies made from monocrys- talline diamond. Thermo-chemical wear was used in order to increase the removal rate during polishing of non planar laser generated diamond surfaces and dia- mond coatings.
