Macro Dicing

What is Macro dicing?

Macro dicing is the term used for heavier duty precision cutting applications. Historically, dicing saws were first pioneered by Loadpoint for the dicing of thin substrates such as silicon wafers. Now, with the ever expanding development of high tech materials and the continued need for high precision, the scope of dicing now incorporates much thicker materials such as ceramics and metals. Thicker materials require higher blade power delivery and the flexibility to use larger diameter cutting wheels to obtain greater cut depths.
