Designed to improve flexibility in mass-production environments, GF AgieCharmilles’ Drill 300 EDM drill is capable of machining holes in various diameters and workpiece materials. The machine employs electrodes ranging from 0.012" to 0.12" in diameter and is capable of precisely machining tough materials, including Inconel, titanium, steel and carbide. Z-axis travel of 17.72" is said to maximize autonomy, and a ±45-degree tilting head enables drilling angled holes. The machine’s six-axis configuration makes it possible to drill round and shaped cooling holes in aerospace blades and vanes, while its indexing table enables the production of holes in a circular pattern.
The Cut 2000 AWC with automatic wire changer and universal wire guide system will also be on display.
