Vertical Machining Center – 3-Axis High Precision – High Speed – Graphite
The Mikron HSM 500 Graphite is a high-speed milling machine dedicated for graphite milling. With the experience of trough high-speed Milling in combination with a dedicated three-axis for Graphite. GF MS provides with this machine the optimum solution for dry graphite milling. The unique design provides clean dry graphite machining for high accuracy, surface quality and dynamic processing.
Graphite machining has never been so attractive—and challenging. While graphite electrodes boost die-sinking electrical discharge machining’s (EDM’s) productivity and reduces costs, the graphite-based glass mold market is quickly growing, with new requirements in terms of surface finish, precision and machining speed.
The Mikron HSM 500 Graphite provides the ideal answer to these challenges. It combines the well-established HSM 500 that set a benchmark in terms of speed and surface finish with a dedicated high-precision Step-Tec Spindle. Additional benefits are its improved dust exhaust unit in a black enclosure and integration of the System 3R WPT1+.The fast-track machine has been transformed into the perfect graphite solution that leaves no trace on your parts or in your workshop.
New technology for best milling results
Get best surface quality and an unbeatable electrode detail with the Step- Tec Spindle’s 42,000 rpm maximum operating speed. Your Graphite production time is shortened by the Spindle’s short run-up and break-in time. The Spindle lifetime is increased by oil-air lubrication of its bearings.
Overcome the difficulties of cutting graphite with our graphite package: The machine’s linear axes are covered and protected and noise is reduced by a hood. All linear axes and ball screws are lubricated by automatic central grease lubrication, and a strong vacuum dependably removes graphite dust.
