EDM Graphite is a specially processed form of carbon that is widely used as an electrode material in Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). Known for its superior thermal conductivity, high strength, and low wear rates, EDM graphite ensures precise and efficient machining processes.
In the EDM process, an electrical charge is applied to both the workpiece and the graphite electrode. The dielectric fluid, usually deionised water, acts as an insulator until the breakdown voltage is reached, after which a spark jumps the gap, eroding the workpiece to match the electrode’s shape. Over time, contamination from metal particles can decrease the insulating properties of the dielectric fluid, and the EDM graphite used in the electrode plays a vital role in maintaining optimal machining conditions and performance.
