DENKYOKU-CAD (Support for creating electrode shapes)

DENKYOKU-CAD provides a full support for all phases of: creating mold, considerations and shaping of electrode parts, and creating documents in order to perform electric discharge. DENKYOKU-CAD assigns the attributes unique to electrode to electrode shapes, and transfers the deliverables to DENKYOKU-CAM for further automatic processes.


Considerations of Target Positions

Positions that require electrical discharge machining can be intuitively understood. As a result, operation errors are reduced.

The capabilities enabling intuitive recognition of a part where electro discharge machining is appropriate reduce operational mistakes.

Creation of Electrode Shapes

  • Electrode edges are shaped in accordance with 4 key shape patterns.
    Design an electrode shape by choosing one from the four typical tip shape patterns.
  • There are 3 standard patterns of electrode oscillating machining: circle, corner, or globe oscillation.
    Select an electrode swing pattern from the three standard types (circle, rectangle, and sphere.)
  • Optimum dimensions can be automatically calculated for pedestal shapes.
    Or, they can be chosen from a standardized list (referred to as ‘DB table) prepared by users.
    The best size of the base shape of an electrode is automatically calculated. Selection of an electrode base from user's own standardized DB table is possible.

Output of Documents and Forms

  • Instruction documents in the form of spreadsheet can be output for electrical discharge machining by using highly responsive XVL data.
  • The instruction spreadsheets can be electronically viewed through the use of (free of charge) dedicated tool. Thus, human errors caused by prejudices can be reduced, due to 3D confirmations of the positions of electric discharge and electrode shapes.

Other Dedicated Features

Interference Check

  • The interference situations between electrode models and modelled shapes can be visually confirmed through the use of Color Mapping Function.

Copy of Electrode Shapes

  • An electrode shape can be copied on a surface of placing the shape by executing commands for copying in parallel, by rotation or through the use of mirror effects (the "Copy_Parallel" command, the "Copy_Rotation" command, or the "Copy_Mirror" command), provided that the electrode shape has been created.
    These commands can reduce the workload of considering and creating electrode shapes.

Standard Settings

  • 2D datum references that are essential for electrical discharge machining can be visually set. (the "RefCorner" command)
  • Altitude datum references can be set intuitively due to 3D capabilities.
    (the "Change_EDM_Position" command, the "Electrode_SetBasePlane" command)
