Recently, the demand for superhard tools for use in a range of industrial applications has been increasing rapidly. The development of advanced materials with superior mechanical properties and iron-based components being replaced by new materials has made superhard tools an absolute necessity. The automotive and the mould-making industries are two examples where superhard tools are essential. In addition, the use of aluminium-silicon alloys and graphite for electrical discharge machines (EDM) is increasing the demand for superior diamond tools. This chapter describes the machining of brittle materials using nanostructured diamond tools. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2009, 2015. All rights are reserved.
