AutoBurn For NX™

Electrode Burning Code
Automation Solution

This state-of-the-art application provides a user-friendly interface to automatically generate electrode burning codes from electrode designs. Eliminate the need for creating drawings and manual user-input to EDMs to reduce errors. Verify electrode designs with tool position mapping and motion simulation. 

Do you struggle with any of these challenges?

– Do you have a need to streamline your Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) process?

– Do you feel you are spending unnecessary time and effort adding additional information to an already rich design?

– Do you have a disconnect between your design and manufacturing environments?

– Do you have to create engineering drawings from your electrode design models?

– Does your EDM team struggle to interpret engineering drawings to input burning codes into your EDM machine?

– Are your processes labor intensive and prone to mistakes?

If yes, then we have a unique solution to address your challenges:

– Streamlines the overall process of EDM.

– Saves time and effort – great reduction in setup times.

– Develop seamless link between your design and manufacturing work.

– Eliminates the need for creating drawings for EDM. Virtually verify electrode motion before actual manufacturing.

– No need to create drawings in the first place. System generates machine ready burning codes for selected EDM machine.

– Reduce costly errors through process automation reducing user-input.
