Graphite milling, the proper way - EDM Sales Supplies, Inc.

Roughing of graphite electrodes can be done by using inserts, if the electrode is large enough, or shank tools, if it is small. For electrode size 50x50 mm or above, we recommend using diamond coated round inserts RDHX0501 or RDHX0802 with a 13 mm cutting diameter and 12 mm shank diameter tool holder. Fig. 4 Fig. 4 shows an example of this tool.

Tips for machining Graphite - Canadian PlasticsCanadian ...

GRAPHITE IS UNFORGIVING. Graphite is unforgiving of surface defects, reflecting even the smallest flaws quite clearly in the workpiece. As such, a good surface finish on the electrode before die sinking reduces bench time on the tool after. A fine step over, and small chordal deviation used to optimize surface finish give good results.
