AT ID&S, we will know, based on your manufacturing capabilities, which details are more efficient to machine and which to burn. Based on that knowledge we can design every electrode for your mold complete with check sheets and Edm setup sheets
ID&S designs all the electrodes associative with the main core and cavity geometry and supplies associative Sinker EDM set up sheets for each insert with all the electrodes for that setup locations, over-burn and orbit patterns.
ID&S designs electrodes that prevent mistakes from occurring in the program and set up of the EDM sinker by supplying X,Y, and Z locations in a data file to load directly into your EDM's memory. This eliminates manual data entry at our end and for the client. We put an orientation chamfer on each electrode to allow your personnel to visually confirm that the electrode in the EDM is set up correctly.
ID&S designs all the electrodes to be milled in dedicated graphite milling machines utilizing the standard tools you have in the tool changer. The electrodes have clearance designed into the overdepth for the radii of the cutter.
ID&S can supply the programs for each electrode for your specific graphite machining center with set up sheets for each electrode or ID&S can machine the electrodes on your holders for you and supply inspection documents in addition to the set up sheets.
