We develop and produce super abrasives, specifically for the honing market, at our state-of-the-art production centre in the UK. In clean conditions we apply first class standards to the entire process, from mixing and dosing powders, to specialist sintering and quality control. Honing sticks are our core product, with capacity to produce over 250,000 high quality sticks per year.
We have invested £250,000 in a state-of-the-art laboratory and clean production facilities at our UK-based headquarters. The standard of our site and the extraordinary expertise of our highly skilled team, make for unmatched standards of service and quality.
Every job is individually initiated with exact accuracy in the measurement of powders. We blend our own diamond powders and bonds, with a range of cutting characteristics, to suit all possible honing applications.
Blending and mixing is automated for consistency, but carefully controlled in our clean, laboratory environment.
Dosing is a precision part of the process, ensuring that exactly the right quantity of abrasive and bond blend is apportioned to each product.
Moulds are built by hand for every production run, with batch quantities of 1 to 1000’s and the capacity to produce over 250,000 high quality sticks per year.
Each mould is loaded with precisely controlled powder doses. Like every stage of the process, care and attention is paid to ultimate quality.
The specialist sintering press is computer controlled and so sintering cycle data from the time of pressing is recorded for every single batch to facilitate complete traceability.
Quality is built into the entire process, with every batch finally measured for specific gravity, to a tolerance of 99.7 % accuracy.
Every product can be printed with specific information to facilitate full traceability. This includes the ability to trace every honing stick back to the powders used, along with the sintering cycle data from the time of pressing.
