STEEL   FORGING
 

 

The client provided the original electrode forms, a modified part from the worn die cavity, the

original part drawings, and the request to raise the height of center section by  0.375 inches.

Multiple 3D scans and contour scans of both the forged part and the electrode form were

conducted. A CAD model was built from the scan data, drawings and height change.  IGES

surfaces were exported to the client, which runs Euclid.  The new model was used to CNC

machine EDM electrodes.
