Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tools are widely used for cutting tools because PCD has no crystal orientation and is an isotropic material, it is low in cost, and it is easily machined by electric discharge machining. PCD is sintered from diamond abrasives with an alloy metal, such as cobalt, and it is difficult to reduce the surface roughness and the edge accuracy compared with single crystal diamond. In this study, high efficiency and high precision machining of the PCD wheel were investigated. In the experiments, PCD wheels were ground with a diamond wheel, and the effects of the grinding direction and the load on the tool preciseness and the scribing performance were examined.
