Step 7

CNC 3D forming – Electrode Making

1.  Complex shapes in steel can not be achieved by CNC milling. Instead, this can be achieved using Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM). The electrodes are important to the EDM process.
2. We use CNC machines to cut the copper blocks which can take several hours to achieve the specified shape.
3. The quantity of electrodes required is determined by the complexity of the mold. For instance, hundreds of electrodes are required for some molds.
4. Each piece is individually CNC machined, and subsequently deburred.
