Advanced three-dimensional stamping
In die sinking a specially-shaped electrode is used that sinks into the material. This electrode functions as a three-dimensional stamp, as it were.
Complex forms for the smallest details
Die sinking is mainly used to add small details at great depth. In this way blind contours are made in every conceivable shape, no matter the complexity. During the process the machined material are rinsed off. Using die sinking uniquely precise forms can be created, even with sharp internal angles.
High degree of process reliability
Because the electrode cannot be continuously replaced as with wire EDM, wear is a factor that must be taken into consideration when applying die sinking. By replacing the electrode promptly, a high degree of process reliability can also be guaranteed for die sinking.
