The DS-550CM die sinker EDM from AccuteX, a division of Absolute Machine Tools, is designed with finite element analysis (FEA) for high-accuracy machining. The machine features an X-Y-Z working capacity of 20" × 16" × 14" with a 32" × 18" worktable. The machine can accommodate 47" × 27" × 17" workpieces as heavy as 2,970 lbs.
Heavily ribbed, high-grade Meehanite casting increases the machine’s rigidity. According to the company, premium-grade components include a precise drive system, linear bearings, Class 5 pre-tensioned fine-finish ballscrews, high-resolution servomotors, roller-type linear guideways and optical scales. The machine is controlled with a 15" industrial-grade, full-color LCD monitor. The software supports dialogue options for simple, straightforward programming and operation, the company says.
Options include a built-in C axis with 360-degree indexing, an automatic electrode changer, a dielectric cooler and a custom tooling package.
