The PS-Electrode automated design system offers a range of customization options; the ability to simulate the action of the electrode; and an Erowa catalog of blanks and holders, in addition to the previous Hirschman and System 3R catalogs. Users can build their own library of components in addition to copying CAD models directly into the system’s database from outside sources. The automated generation of setup sheets for the machining and application of the electrodes can be generated as HTML files or as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Additionally, the system’s integration with the PowerShape hybrid modelling software gives the user the option to leave the automatic process at any stage, make design adjustments, and return to the automated options. According to the company, this allows for completing complex designs and generating an electrode design that can be mirrored or duplicated for other areas of the model. The software can also combine different sections into one electrode or add geometry to the design, such as reinforcing ribs, alignment notches or fillets.
