SMARTElectrode

SMARTElectrode is a software solution for designing die sinking electrodes within Creo Parametric and seamlessly succeeds the design of injection mold tools with B&W’s EMX. Using the associativity to the cavity models a continuous process chain is established that takes modifications from the original parts and sends the processed files to downstream manufacturing.

Automatic data transfer to the electrode machines avoids error prone input and costly tool repair operations. Standard process take care of continuously high quality – strong software features provide increasing productivity.

 

Functional overview:

Smart definition of eroding surfaces with different selection filters to easily extract electrode models
Access to fully customizable standard catalogs for electrode templates and holders
Calculate effective burn-area and gap values
Customizable export templates for machining data in all established formats
A variety of analysis tools like interference checking or electrode animation
Interfaces for automatic data transfer to all popular EDM machines
