Abstract
(EN)
An electromachining system includes at least one steerable electrode (100). The steerable electrode includes an electrode positioning mechanism (102) configured to facilitate six degrees of freedom referenced to a pitch axis, a yaw axis, and a roll axis. The three axes are substantially perpendicular to each other. The electrode positioning mechanism includes a first end and a rotatable electrode tip (136) coupled to the first end.

L'invention concerne un système d'usinage par électroérosion comprenant au moins une électrode orientable (100). L'électrode orientable comprend un mécanisme de positionnement d'électrode (102) configuré pour faciliter six degrés de liberté référencés sur un axe de tangage, un axe de lacet et un axe de roulis. Les trois axes sont sensiblement perpendiculaires les uns aux autres. Le mécanisme de positionnement d'électrode comprend une première extrémité et une pointe d'électrode rotative (136) accouplée à la première extrémité.
