ELCD-250 is an electrical discharge machining method using electrode wear by thermal effect of spark discharge based on highly refined and insulative hydrocarbon.
If the construct is conductive, high precision processing can be easily done using soft processing electrodes such as copper, graphite, etc, regardless of whether they have great hardness, difficult-to-process materials or difficult-to process shapes. The method has become widely popular centering on mold machining fields such as automotive and consumer electronics and, recently, its application has been extended to grinding and cutting, etc.
The main agent is the thermal effect generated from the discharge phenomenon with structure and electrode as its two poles. The processing is done through scattering removal of melting point portion by the shocking pressure resulting from the evaporation and melting point phenomenon of materials (structure and electrode) and incidental rapid evaporation of working oil.
It is also added with good antioxidant resulting in less deterioration during use and high stability.
Its discharge efficiency is maximized, with high insulation and rapid recovery of insulation after discharging.
The product is capable of quality and productivity improvement as well as cost reduction.
1) Composed of highly refined hydrocarbon base, it provides superior insulation.
Composed of highly refined and insulative hydrocarbon base, it provides superior insulation as well as
maximized discharging efficiency showing rapid recovery of insulation after discharging.
2) Even after long-term use, it shows little performance degradation due to inclusion of metallic ion.
The spark temperature during discharge is around 5,000℃, which generates instantaneous metallic ion
as well as hydrogen gas through the decomposition of EDM (electrical discharge machining) oil.
The generated metallic ion and hydrogen gas becomes the cause of decreased insulation of the
machining fluids, which, in turn, causes reduction of discharging efficiency as well as oil‘s service life,
mandating proper removal of the generated ion.
Designed to effectively absorb and remove various ions generated during machining, it enables efficient
use for a long time without performance degradation.
3) Its low viscosity enables good detergency and prompt removal and disposal of machining products.
If the machining product generated during electrical discharge machining is not removed quickly, it could
generate arc, resulting in the welding of electrode to material and causing poor grinding and damage to
4) Its rust preventive ability is excellent.
Having used high-performance rust prevention additive, it achieves excellent rust prevention ability
advantageous to the protection of facility.
5) Good oxidation stability leads to less degradation and corruption, extending its service life.
The high temperature generated during electrical discharge machining asserts fatal influence on
machining oil‘s oxidation stability.
Because the oxidation of machining oil causes its performance degradation as well as reduction of oil‘s
service life, the EDM should have excellent thermal and oxidation stability.
As ELCD-250 has excellent thermal and oxidation stability, with the addition of proper antioxidant, it can
be used freshly for a long time.
It reduces the deterioration of the product in use and enables long-term usage by using superior ntioxidant.
6) Its high flash point ensures its safety from fire.
As EDM‘s main ingredients are combustible hydrocarbon solvent for its insulation characteristics, danger
of fire always exists.
ELCD-250 is designed to have high flash point to minimize danger of fire so that it can be safely used.
7) It uses high class base oil with high viscosity index.
Using the base oil with high viscosity index results in little change in its viscosity despite temperature
shift and prevents damage to the oil film due to high temperature, extending the service life of the
product in use.
8) It shows high stability for the working environment and worker‘s body.
It has neither color nor odor and is composed of materials harmless to human body so that work can be
done in safe and pleasant environment.
It uses highly refined base oil with high flash point, reducing danger of fire and odor and making it
excellent for working environment.
