Synthetic Diamonds for use in the Defence Industry

Synthetic Diamonds for use in the Defence Industry

Element Six supermaterials are used to manufacture new composites in the latest defence vehicles.

Element Six designs, develops and produces supermaterials for use in the manufacturing of defence components and systems, and for use at the core of emerging defence solutions.

Our defence component manufacturing solutions
Element Six supermaterials are used in cutting, milling, drilling and grinding applications in the manufacturing of aerospace defence components, vehicles and craft. For the use of titanium and carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP), our supermaterials provide high precision production, extended machine tool life and improved operational productivity.

We work closely with our customers to develop specific defence industry tooling solutions, successfully helping them to develop processes which meet exacting end-user requirements. Our range of supermaterials includes polycrystalline diamond (PCD), polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN), cubic boron nitride (CBN) and tungsten carbide.
 

Our emerging defence solutions
Beyond the cutting and abrasive tooling for manufacturing components, synthetic diamond materials are themselves used at the core of emerging defence solutions, such as detectors, homeland security, radio frequency communications and ultra-wear resistant windows.
