Copper electrodes - Each part just like the others
5-axis reproducibility of electrodes

Part of the Month March 2017

Technology: Precision milling (5-axis reproducibility) - Electrodes, each part just like the others

Precision machining center:


  • Production of a small series of 10 copper electrodes
  • Goal: Minimum dispersion from the target values

Path to the goal:

  • Optimization of the machine kinematics so that the 5-axis positioning fits perfectly
  • Use of the internal pallet changer

Part dimensions:

  • approx. 14 mm


  • Dimensions and position values (also 5-axis) of all electrodes within +/- 2 ┬Ám
