The system has also benefited from a number of options introduced into Delcam’s Power Shape design software. These include the ability to merge fragmented faces into a single, continuous surface to produce cleaner, simple electrode geometry. This simplification makes subsequent operations, such as adding draft to complex regions of the model, much easier and also improves the operation of many of the direct modelling tools in the software, the company said.

The electrode software can now provide scripts for Exeron and JDMA EPX units. It already supported machines from Agie Charmilles (Agievision and CT Millennium controls), Makino EDM, Mitsubishi Electric, Ona, OPS-Ingersoll, Sodick and Zimmer & Kreim.
