Tebis supports the entire process sequence, from electrode design to sinker EDM for shorter throughput time and greater reliability,. Electrodes must be used when milling in certain areas of a mold reaches its limit. Electrode design in Tebis supports convenient creation of the complete electrode and relieves the user of tedious routine tasks.
Reliable analyses allow you to automatically determine the eroding areas and extract burn surfaces at the click of a button. A wizard guides you through the design steps to complete the electrode. Tebis provides powerful CAD functions and libraries to finish the complete electrode.
Let Tebis automatically show you the areas you still need to erode after milling for electrode design. The analysis is based on the smallest milling tool used. You can automatically determine eroding areas marked by color codes showing residual stock thickness: Red indicates large amounts, and green small amounts. You can also analyze the part for electrodes that have already been designed.
The required surfaces are extracted as a negative form at the click of a button. You can derive the further design of the entire burn geometries based on this.
Powerful interactive graphical CAD functions are available for complete electrode design:
Use digital twins from the libraries to quickly select suitable stock holders and blanks. Important design features are also stored there.
A wizard guides the user through automated assembly of the complete electrode for sinker EDM – including the probe frame, base, holder and the requisite raw material.
We achieved a 60% increase in manufacturing efficiency using sinker EDM.
