Tebis puts you in control of the complexities of sinker EDM. Tebis supports the entire process, from automatic detection of the areas to be eroded to convenient database-supported design of the electrodes, their methodical NC machining, and measurement of the finished electrodes. All parameters that are important for manufacturing and use of the electrodes are automatically managed in parts lists. This enables direct control of the machines and the generation of accompanying documents if necessary.
Let Tebis support you with an automatic search for all areas that still need to be machined after milling. This analysis before sinker EDM is based on the smallest milling tool used.
The burn surfaces of the electrode can be resolved from the geometry at the click of a button. Use powerful interactive graphical functions to lengthen and complete the electrode. A wizard guides the user through assembly of the complete electrode for sinker EDM – including the probe frame, base, holder and the requisite raw material.
The structured design of the electrodes means that they’re perfectly prepared for for automated NC programming. This is achieved using the individually prepared machining sequences stored in libraries and material removal strategies proven in practice. Tebis uses these to calculate contiguous CNC programs automatically for roughing, finishing and residual stock machining.
Tebis supports you in sinker EDM with quality control integrated in the process so you can produce maximum quality. This is achieved by measuring the electrode and transmitting offset data and the actual spark gap to the sinker EDM machine.
You can manage all information for sinker EDM in the clearly structured electrode management. In addition to the electrode, holder and blank, this includes the NC programs for milling, eroding paths, NC programs for measurement and the documentation. And if you want maximum automation – with flexible manufacturing cells for electrodes and sinker electrodes – all the necessary information for cell control is available in the electrode management. This ensures a reliable automated electrode process.
