EDM Graphite Machining
Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a manufacturing process that involves the use of electrical discharges or sparks to cut, shape, or remove material from a workpiece. It’s a method typically used when the material is particularly hard, or when very precise or complex shapes need to be created. EDM does not involve direct contact between the tool and the workpiece, which means less stress and force are exerted on the workpiece, allowing for the creation of delicate and intricate shapes.
In the context of EDM Graphite Machining, graphite is the material most often used to form the electrode that generates the spark in the EDM process. Graphite is an excellent material for EDM machining because it is able to withstand high temperatures, it’s less likely to deform under heat stress, and it erodes more slowly than other materials. These attributes result in fewer electrode changes, higher removal speed, and improved surface finish on the workpiece, which can increase overall efficiency and productivity in the EDM process.
