Through advanced metallurgy metallurgy (mĕt`əlûr'jē), science and technology of metals and their alloys. Modern metallurgical research is concerned with the preparation of radioactive metals, with obtaining metals economically from low-grade ores, with  research, Sumitomo provides a wide variety of polycrystalline Adj. 1. polycrystalline - composed of aggregates of crystals; "polycrystalline metals"
crystalline - consisting of or containing or of the nature of crystals; "granite is crystalline"
 cubic boron nitrides (CBN) and polycrystalline diamonds (PCD) that contribute to the advancement of technology and cutting tool performance. Ideal for high-speed, high-hardness applications, our CBN can take on alloy steels with hardnesses greater than R^sub c^ 45, as well as a variety of types of cast irons and cast steels. Our PCD 1000 provides the toughness of cemented carbide and wear resistance of diamond. It was specially developed for machining of nonferrous materials. This truly revolutionary grade is available for turning, milling, boring, and other demanding machining applications.
