Reliable wet-milling graphite in a new dimension
Albert Polenz GmbH & Co. KG - At Albert Polenz, toolmakers, the era of graphite machining already began in 2006. Meanwhile, the proportion of graphite electrodes is 100 percent. Despite suction directly at the workpiece and special scrapers for ball screws and guides, a solution to completely eliminate dust formation was searched for in Großweitzschen. Together with Fehlmann, a concept for wet machining graphite was developed. However, run times and material removal rates for graphite electrodes cannot be compared with those of conventional electrodes.
