A Voice for Business – Dorset Chamber of Commerce & Industry

In January 2019 Industrial Abrasives Ltd joined the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry who are accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce.

Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry DCCI






With a commitment to our customers and suppliers both in the UK and overseas, it is vital that we are aware of any decisions and legislative changes made by government at a local or national level that have a direct impact on business and the uncomplicated continuation of trade with our overseas contacts.

Our membership not only aids us in our awareness of industry news, but also provides opportunities to develop a network of business contacts with similar concerns and also gives us access to specialists at the DCCI, just one of many chapters of the British Chambers of Commerce. So we add our voice to thousands of other businesses across the United Kingdom especially on matters of concern during interesting political times.

All of us here at Industrial Abrasives look forward to opportunities in 2019 to make our DCCI membership count and we assure our customers large and small that we are committed to going the extra mile to provide the best quality products and service level to each of you.

We have moved to a larger premises!

After many years in Bournemouth, we have relocated our offices to a larger premises in the historic town of Christchurch, only five miles away. As from 1st May 2018, all mail should be sent to our new PO Box in Christchurch and for existing customers, we will be providing you with our new direct delivery address. Our former PO Box 1101 address in Bournemouth should NOT be used any longer. Please update your records.

We look forward to serving our clients from our new and improved offices.

Quality Matters!

indab- ‘Drill-Tip’ PCD (commonly referred to as Sandwich PCD)

Ongoing development of our ‘Drill-Tip’ PCD Grade (Commonly referred to as Sandwich PCD) has now produced some very positive results!

PCD Diamond Drill Tips







The processes involved in manufacturing this Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) material have been further improved in recent months and this is now paying off. Now with improved adhesion of the carbide to both sides of the central diamond layer, tool producers are seeing good results during the final grinding of the PCD cutting edge.

With the ongoing development of new composite materials for aerospace and other industries, tool producers face new challenges to develop tooling that offers fast and accurate performance with good tool-life for cutting and machining these complex materials. This is where our ‘Drill Tip’ PCD  can be advantageous especially in applications utilising such materials.

If you are a diamond tool manufacturer, please visit our webpage dedicated to the indab-PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) product range.

Please feel free to contact us if you need more technical information.

Laser Cut Diamonds – Addition to our product range

Laser cut rounds 300x300

There has been a great advance in cutting technology over the last decade which now increases the possibilities to the diamond tool maker no end.  With the ability to now accurately cut natural diamonds to a close tolerance using laser technology, we can do things that were not easily possible in the past. As laser cutting machines have developed and become more widely used it has now become more affordable.

By using this technology to cut a mixture of natural and synthetic diamonds, we can now increase the range of products and services offered and work even more closely with our clients.

This month we have launched a new page on our website to include these laser cut industrial diamonds to demonstrate to our clients that we can efficiently offer this service and we look forward to supplying the industry with more of what it really needs in the coming months and years ahead.
