Die sinking processes are used for sharp-edged and difficult-to-mill component areas. The suitable electrodes need to be designed first, then programmed and finally machined. The hyperCAD®-S Electrode module significantly reduces the amount of work involved in both the design and CAM programming stage.
The Electrode module largely automates the design process in hyperCAD®-S CAD software. The NC programmer selects the faces to be eroded on the component geometry and the hyperCAD®-S Electrode module generates the corresponding collision-free electrodes including extensions and the selection of holders from a library.
