EDM Network will exhibit the HM43GT graphite mill, which features an optional “oil shroud” that virtually eliminates the dust common to graphite milling. EDM-compatible oil captures the graphite dust, and then it is filtered through 2-30-micron cartridge filters. Vacuum compatibility is also available.

The HM43GT and two larger models, the HM65GT and HM86GT, all feature 30,000-rpm spindles with HSKE 32, 40 and 50 tapers, plus optional Blum laser diameter compensation and Fagor glass scales. In addition to graphite milling, the larger models can be equipped with 10- and 15-Kw motors to mill metals as hard as 63 HRC.
