The been brought into its final shape, which is located bottom is provided at the outside with a flange 5. in the immediate vicinity of the ring in question. It would be possible to turn such a body. Ac-

If. as indicated in Fig. 3, the distances between cording to the invention such a body is pro- 6 the rings are divided into two, it would be obvious duced with the aid of the cold-squirting process. that, when considering the zones between these As previously mentioned, this method is known lines of separation to be zones of afllux of the enfor squirting bodies of simple, e. g. cup-shaped closed rings, with these apparent zones of afllux form. Use is made in that case of a device conan equal height for all rings could be obtained if sisting of two parts. Building further on that 5 which is known, one arrives at the device shown in Fig. 2 which consists of a stationary table 8 and a movable stamp or die. A pastil or metal blank P is placed on the table. The stamp comprises a body pierced with a cylindrical aperture and a plurality of annular stamp portions 9 and I0. The body 1 has a widened portion Ii in which the flange is formed which is required for the easy removal of the body after the moulding operation. The applicants have found, however that such a mould would be completely unfit for use because there would be produced an electrode as shown in Fig. 3.

It is impossible to mould with this device in such manner that the inner rings, too, acquire a sufllcient height. The applicants have found that this phenomenon has to be ascribed to the causes mentioned hereafter.

Fig. 3 shows diagrammatically the apparent zones of aifiux. The apparent'zone of aillux P2 of the outermost ring is substantially equal to the apparent zones of ailiux i3 and ll of the rings located more inwards. It has been found, however, that with this mould the real zone of ailiux of the outer rings is much larger than that of the inner rings and that the extension of the real zones of afllux decreases inwardly. This phenomenon results from the greater resistance against deformation experienced by the material in the neighbourhood of the rings located farther inwardly. According to the invention, this drawback may be removed by reducing the apparent zone of ailiux of the outermost ring. It has been found that this measure acts upon the real zones of ailiux of all rings in such manner that for each ring which is located more outwardly less material is available, owing to which all rings acquire a substantially equal height. This may be ensured, for example, by suppressing the annular cavity II in Fig. 2 which, on shallow consideration, would be required in order to obtain the desired shape. There is produced in this case a condenser electrode according to Fig. 4 which is smooth on the outside and whose rings have substantially the same height. It will be seen that the apparent zone of afiiux I5 of the outermost ring is smaller than the apparent zones of afilux l6 of the following rings. The apparent zones of afliux of the other rings are equal. There is produced in this way a central aperture with a narrowed portion which may be utilized, if desired, for the expulsion of the work-piece.

As results from the above, a radial displacement of the material during deformation is required in order to obtain the desired deformation. It is necessary for this purpose that in the achieved electrode the thickness of the bottom is large relatively to the thickness of the rings, for example four times as large. Slight disparities in the height of the rings may be compensated for in the manner usually applied in technics.

An electrode according to the invention having the flange 5 shown in Fig. 1 may be manufactured with the aid of the moulding device represented in Fig. 5. This device consists of a table I! and of a body l8 arranged thereon which does not move together with the stamp and which has an annular recess I 9. P denotes again the pastil. The stamp has a pin 20 and a few annular stamp portions 2i, 22 and 23. It has been found that with this mould, too, the apparent zone of aillux of the outermost ring is smaller than those of the other rings so that the desired effect is ensured. The lower surface of the bottom of the electrode may have any desired profile which is simultaneously pressed into it.

The applicants have found that the increase of the zone of aillux for the innermost ring, which may be obtained, for example, by suppressing or reducing the aperture in the bottom, acts almost exclusively on the deformation of the inner rings but does not extend to the rings located further outwards. A central aperture is consequently always indispensable. This does, however, not entail any disadvantage, for this aperture may serve very well for the attachment of the electrode in the condenser. This is particularly important with adjustable condensers. Through said aperture may be passed in this case, for example, a spindle on which the electrode is slidable.

The electrode according to the invention aiIords, in addition to its cheap manufacture, the further advantage that the distance between two rings is always the same. Besides, all electrodes manufactured with one and the same device, are exactly identical so that the disparities in the values of the capacities of different condensers may be kept very small.

As the material may be utilised first of all aluminium and then also content of copper, lead and zinc. In general any material utilised in cold-squirting may be, employed. A previous heating of the pastil may be advantageous. If use is made of aluminium, the heating temperature should preferably amount to about 200 C.
