Title (EN) SPARK EROSION ELECTRODE
(FR) ELECTRODE POUR ELECTROEROSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A spark erosion electrode (1) can create a contoured surface to facilitate the growth and adhesion of bone tissue on the surface. The electrode (1) includes a collection of parallel electrode members (10), which are preferably tubular. These members (10) are held by a releasable clamp (2) such that they can be moved axially whereby ends of the members (10) can form a negative pattern of a required contour which can then be replicated on the surface of an object such as that of a bone implant.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une électrode pour électroérosion (1) susceptible de former une surface profilée au niveau de laquelle la croissance et l'adhésion de tissu osseux sont facilitées. Ladite électrode (1) comporte un ensemble d'éléments d'électrodes parallèles (10) qui sont de préférence tubulaires. Ces éléments (10) sont maintenus par un dispositif de blocage (2) libérable qui les autorise à se déplacer axialement de telle sorte que des extrémités de ces éléments (10) peuvent constituer un modèle négatif d'un profil requis qui peut ensuite être dupliqué à la surface d'un objet du type greffon osseux.
