Graphite foil has excellent thermal properties and can withstand a wide range of temperatures
as well as high pressure.
We can fabricate it to fit custom applications.

Flexible Graphite Heater Tubes* for PCD cutter production

Advantage over machined graphite tubes:

  • Easier to store, handle, and assemble without breakage compared to machined graphite
  • Electrical resistance is higher than standard machined graphite allowing for lower power input
  • Flexible Heater tubes DO NOT CRACK during the pressing cycle
    • No cracks means no hot spots
    • No hot spots mean fewer defects
  • Electrical resistance is strictly controlled through the manufacturing process and inspection
    • More consistent heating, fewer defects
  • No graphite dust generated during handling
    • Operators do not get graphite on their hands
    • No chance of contamination of the product with carbon
  • High purity materials with zero emissions during pressing process
  • Used successfully in production at major producers for over five years
    • Some customers have experienced 30-40% lower defects after changing from Machined Graphite Heater tubes.
