Five-Axis Hard Milling Improves Electrode Accuracy

Problem: Moldmaker couldn’t machine graphite electrodes fast enough to meet needs of new sinker EDMs, so he was sending work to outside companies to relieve production bottleneck.

Solution: Purchased one, and then another, OPS Ingersoll high-speed, five-axis hard-milling centers.

Results: Moldmaker could now mill much faster and more accurately that it brought all graphite electrode production back in-house and increased mold production rates.
