Milling graphite without changing tools

As a new tool for the processing of graphite, HUFSCHMIED has introduced the Graftor® into its range. It makes tool changes redundant when processing graphite electrodes: Roughing and finishing are achieved in one single processing step whilst exerting only a low cutting force on the often extremely delicate pins of the electrodes. Thus, manufacturing time and expense are massively reduced. As with all of Hufschmied’s graphite milling cutters, Graftor® is equipped with a patented nano-crystalline diamond coating. This means that even the smallest of milling tools remain sharp against the abrasive graphite and achieve surface qualities that are up to two grades higher.
