REASON 1 :
Cu-TRODE™ is competitively priced with both Graphite & Tellurium
Copper, and is 1/3 to 1/2 the price of Copper impregnated
Tired of dealing with Graphite dust along with Disposal of spent
electrodes? Cu-TRODE™ is not messy, dusty or migratory like
Graphite dust. Plus, the Cu-TRODE™ chips are worth money!
REASON 3 :
The Cu-TRODE™ chips and spent electrode can be sold as Number 2
copper to any recycler of non-ferrous metals.
With Cu-TRODE™, EDM electrode wear/consumption is reduced, in
some cases by as much as 60%, when compared to graphite.
Typically EDM burn speeds, when compared to graphite,
are much faster with Cu-TRODE™ amounting to better machine
: Liquid Effect
With Cu-TRODE™, cutting fluids, coolants & dielectric fluids
have NO adverse effect either while EDM'ing or re-machining
: Cutter Wear
Cu-TRODE™ does not present the cutting tool wear issues common when machining
Typically, when EDMing either steel or copper alloy work pieces,
fewer electrodes are needed when using Cu-TRODE™. The benefit of
making fewer electrodes, both from raw material cost and reduced
machining time, makes Cu-TRODE™ the
more profitable choice. This is a result of reduced electrode
wear during burning. With Cu-TRODE™, there is Less end wear and
Less corner wear. FEWER ELECTRODES means fewer tool changes,
meaning the machine is
burning rather than making tool changes. FEWER ELECTRODES also
means fewer EDM holders committed to jobs. This all means cost
savings to your business operations.
