5 Axis Graphite Electrode Machining Center

GRAPHITE ELECTRODE & COPPER ELECTRODE HOMEPAGE - CNC Milling Engraving & Machining of Graphite & Copper Electrodes

DATRON high-speed CNC Graphite Electrode & Copper Electrode Machining Center. Made in Germany, this precision machine mills and engraves graphite and copper electrodes at high speed with dust protection. This compact machining system has an added protection kit for machining graphite electrodes and abrasive materials. Covered linear guidances and ballscrews with positive air flow ensures that no abrasive or harmful materials can get into the motion mechanics of the machine. Sealed housing for all motion control electronics and motors also protects against contamination of the machine control system. The full enclosure complete with safety lock is equipped with a connection to an air flow system for dust extraction. This machining system is ideal for machining graphite electrodes, glass-fiber composites, ceramics or any hazardous or abrasive material.

Add the Graphite Electrode VORTEX for added dust protection:
Other equipment manufacturers may tell you that milling graphite electrodes is the same as any other machining. The reality is that processes like redressing graphite ram EDM dies and machining graphite electrodes produces an abrasive dust that can be damaging to CNC machines and reduce their efficiency. That's why Datron has engineered the Graphite Vortex specifically for your graphite electrode application. The Vortex is seated and secured to the machining table using our proprietary Quick-Pallets technology. A cylinder surrounds the workpiece and machining spindle. Dust falls into a cylinder that features a spiral (or vortex) airflow so that dust keeps moving and never has a chance to settle in.

Machines Made for Graphite Electrode Milling:
We've gone to great lengths to protect our graphite electrode milling machines from abrasive dust. On various models, the linear guide ways and precision ground ball screws are covered and feature positive airflow as well as an automatic greasing system that forces any debris out of the machines' working parts. A 60,000 RPM spindle is pressurized to prevent any dust from entering the bearings. The enclosure is designed for optimized airflow and can easily be fitted with a dust collector or your existing dust collection system to keep airborne dust in check. Plus, our compact design, together with the 208V-7 Amps power requirement, allows it to be placed right next to your ram EDM machine.

The Art of Milling Graphite Electrodes:
When graphite dust settles on surfaces, it becomes stubborn and is hard to remove. That's why Datron engineers developed a way to keep the dust swirling in a spiral air flow. The cylinder and suction hose on the Graphite Vortex feature a special geometry to create a vortex effect.

An industrial brush head extends the height of the vortex to capture stray particles, while at the same time, allowing the spindle and probe to move in and out of the machining area without restricting their movements.
