Why the copper tungsten electrode is the preferred material for EDMing carbides

Graphite has long been the preferred material for the majority of sinker EDM electrode applications--except when it comes to EDMing carbides. For intricate geometries, sharp corners, unparalleled wear resistance, excellent cutting speeds and machinability, copper tungsten is the material of choice. But what unique benefits give it a place across industries? This white paper reviews:

  • An overview of the unique material properties that make for an ideal EDM electrode.
  • The variety of unique compositions and relative applications.
  • Tips on choosing a vendor.
  • The critical concern every electrode fabricator should know.

Find out why the copper tungsten electrode may be the right choice for your EDMing application.
