Machining graphite with Datron high speed CNC machining centers featuring the graphite vortex for milling graphite with dust collection and dust management

Machining GRAPHITE


Other equipment manufacturers may tell you that machining graphite is the same as any other substrate. The reality is that processes like redressing graphite ram EDM dies and machining electrodes produces an abrasive dust that can be damaging to CNC machines and reduce their efficiency. That’s why DATRON has engineered machine features specifically for your unique application and environment.


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 products’ compact design, together with the 208V-7 Amps power requirement, allows it to be placed right next to your ram EDM machine.
