EDM Graphite Electrodes
EDM graphite electrodes refer to the electrodes used in the Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) process, which are typically made from graphite. EDM is a manufacturing technique in which a desired shape is obtained from a workpiece by using electrical discharges or sparks. This process is widely used when the workpiece is very hard or when the design is complex and requires high precision.
Graphite is one of the most popular materials used to make EDM electrodes due to its unique properties. It’s able to withstand high temperatures, has excellent electrical conductivity, and resists deformation under heat stress. Moreover, graphite has a slower erosion rate compared to other materials, which reduces the frequency of electrode replacement, enhancing the overall efficiency and productivity of the EDM process.
