I want to do electroplating with diamond grit and make profiling, grinding and cutting disks. (see the attached photos)

I want to know the process to make the machine or the company whom is selling machinery to do it.

UPDATE : My question is not about how to shape metal like this, I know how to do it. My question is that, how can I electroplate diamond grit on the surface of these profiling wheels?

    $\begingroup$ One cannot electroplate with diamonds, other methods have to be used to cover things with them. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Well, you can electroplate from a bath containing diamond bits, encapsulating some diamond in the film. It is a pretty standard industrial process. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Googling 'electroplating diamond grit' produces a wealth of sites. Since it is an industrial process, likely each firm has their own 'magic recipe', but you could start at, say, dpcanada.com/en/articles/plating-brazing $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Yes, likely a problem for such processes. Each company has their trade secrets. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Tou can make the form blanks and send them to norton abrasives and they can diamond electrolyte them for you. It doesnt cost as much as you would think, and when they are worn out just send them back. If you go on thier website they have all of the info in printable form in the diamond abrasives catalog. It covers dimensions for blanks to be undersized before coating. I am a toolmaker we use them for fine radii on punches and other tooling. Hope this helps. James $\endgroup$ Nov 27, 2022 at 0:03
