Manufacture of Electrodes for Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM) of Complex Surfaces in Moulds


Article Preview

In the present consumer, the personalization and originality of the made polymeric products it is one of the area in which dwells efforts of investigation take it pleases. Many companies uses plastic recipients that dog be painted or wrapped with to plastic but to however, the development of artistic relief plows not developed. The biggest problem was obtaining an artistic process out. In manual a way, it is very complicated, and there was not specific software to develop this kind of work because they were designed to carry out tech-line pieces. The aim of this work is to develop to method to produces to 3-D relief, an artistic appears and some letters, in a mould.
