Graphite & Copper Electrode (EDM)
Advanced tools to design perfect Shaped cavities
With TYPE CAD, TYPE ART & TYPE CAM modules Tool Makers can design from any 2D curve elevation, new engraved cavities accordingly to the strict dimensions set within Blue prints. The results are way more accurate than a Solid modeller solution can bring. Vectors are perfectly defined beyog microns tolerances, and allow any element of the design to be accurately transfered to the controler of the CNC.
Electro-erosion is a manufacturing process aiming to mark and engrave usually hard to cut materials mostly used in dies and molds industries. Often made of Copper or Graphite the electrode is the machined element creating the marking/engraving at a defined depth. The shape of the electrode can be as various as the design to be engraved, the first manufacturing interest being able to build squared cavities where usual rotating tooling would shape or mark falsly the area with rounded corners. Thanks to an electrical pulse built between the hard material and the power supplied electrode, the electricity replaces Tools contact by punching the material with a high voltage intensity, burning and marking the part at a defined pace insuring an end result within the mold and repeatability of the end user product built for it.
