Deficiencies Of Graphite Electrodes

Apr 24, 2019
Graphite electrode, mainly petroleum coke, needle coke as raw material, coal pitch as binder, calcination, ingredients, kneading, molding, baking and graphitization, machining and made, which is released in electric arc furnace in the form of arc conductor of electricity to heat melting furnace charge, according to its quality index, can be divided into ordinary power, high power and high power.

Graphite has its drawbacks. Unlike copper electrodes, which can be recycled. But with such high productivity, this is relatively insignificant. Of course, switching from copper to graphite requires an understanding of how graphite materials are used, as well as many other considerations. There are different grades of graphite and it is desirable to use appropriate grades of graphite and machine parameters for specific applications. If machine operators using graphite electrodes use the same Settings as copper electrodes, the results are disappointing. Switching to full graphite discharge machining has many advantages. The success of the transformation will depend on the knowledge and training provided by oems and graphite manufacturers to achieve the desired performance. At present, many mold factories are converting to graphite processing to shorten product delivery time and enhance the competitiveness in the market.
