Machining graphite like milling electrodes and redressing ram EDM Dies requires a CNC machining Center made for it and protected from abrasive graphite dust. DATRON high speed CNC machining centers are made for machining graphite.
Years of experience in precision carbon graphite machining result in superior products with the outstanding performance and benefits of graphite.. Mechanical carbon-graphite can be accurately machined to exceptionally close tolerances.
Graphite Machining We utilize the latest in technology to manufacture custom machined carbon and graphite products. From our data capturing ERP system, to our Solidworks and MasterCam computer aided drafting and machining software we are at the forefront of machining with technology.
Machining graphite and carbon produces dust with particles size in the range 0.0004”-0.005” (10-130μm). The dust mast be removed from the machining region by a dust extraction system providing a minimum air velocity of 6 ft/s (20 m/s).
The graphite-range comprises corner ball end mills, full-ball end mills, roughing end mills as well as drills, thread milling cutters and deburrs and thus offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of diamond-coated tools for graphite processing.
In milling, the incoming graphite products and concentrates can be ground before being classified (sized or screened), with the coarser flake size fractions (below 8 mesh, 8–20 mesh, 20–50 mesh) carefully preserved, and then the carbon contents are determined. Some standard blends can be prepared from the different fractions ...
