Manufacturers are constantly under pressure to increase production efficiency and quality, whilst reducing costs. As part of this, associated molds, tools and dies must be created faster, and more cost-effectively.
Autodesk has developed a single integrated design, manufacture and inspection suite for the production of the EDM electrodes commonly used in mold and toolmaking, giving manufacturers a range of tools to maintain their competitive edge. Combining PowerShape for design, PowerMill for machining and PowerInspect for inspection, this powerful software reduces learning times and support costs, whilst creating high quality finished electrodes.
As well as eliminating human error issues associated with manual data entry and simplifying data management using a single .TRODE file, Autodesk Electrode Suite saves time by defining and saving specific machining strategies for reuse and handles complex electrodes easily using powerful yet intuitive Direct Modelling tools. It also enables users to design complex 3D models from scratch, and prepare imported data for manufacture – quickly, simply and accurately.
Reduce support costs and improve efficiency by designing, machining and inspecting in a single manufacturing software suite – creating high quality finished electrodes.
Store all your design, machining and inspection information in a single .TRODE file to increase electrode production efficiency.
Modify complex geometry efficiently using the latest Parasolid™ technology.
Improve speed and consistency by capturing and saving defined design and machining strategies, including measurement and pre-setting points, for future projects.
Record and repeat your own machining strategies to save time for future use.
Compare electrodes directly against original CAD models for control and consistency.
