The world's first 3D printed diamond composite AN INNOVATION BY SANDVIK

Diamond is harder than anything else in nature. It is a key component in a large range of wear resistant tools in industry, but since it’s so hard and complicated to machine it is almost impossible to form complex shapes. To solve this, Sandvik has developed a proprietary process making it possible to 3D print diamond composite, meaning that this super-hard material now can be printed in highly complex shapes – and can thereby revolutionize the way industries use the hardest natural material on the planet. Watch the film.

You are looking at the world’s first 3D printed diamond composite. Perfect structure. Perfect characteristics. Just imagine what it could do to industries, when it is possible to print anything, in any shape – in diamond.
