Handling Instructions

SMI recommends a periodic dressing be performed to keep the diamond surface free from build-up during normal slicing operations. This procedure should be performed periodically at every 50 slices approximately 3-5 cuts with the aluminum oxide dressing stick. This method is performed by plunge-cut (fixture mount only) at 50% reduced operating speeds.


Dressing sticks require no special storage consideration.


Dispose of in accordance with all applicable local regulations.
