I had the privilege of being one of many faces in the crowd at last week’s Mitsubishi EDM open house, which was hosted at MC Machinery Systems’ facility in Wood Dale, Illinois. Emphasis on the “many”—the place was packed. One company representative estimated attendance to be close to 400, based on registration numbers and rough visual estimates of turnout.
Free lunch notwithstanding, the big draw was the company’s new MV series wire EDMs, which feature non-contact cylindrical drive technology as well as a number of other enhancements. This article from our April issue details the drive system, and a run-down of other notable features can be found here.
