Paper Abstract

Diamond Point Machining is an extremely sensitive machining operation with very special facility considerations and support equipment requirements. This paper will cover the philosophy, production flow, facility configuration, and support equipment requirements for a complete Diamond Point Machining Facility. The Texas Instruments facility will be used as a model and the design specifications for that facility will be reviewed. General production processes will be covered to explain machine and equipment use as well as to describe the complexity involved in Diamond Machining.
