GF Machining Solutions offers the AgieCharmilles Cut C 350 and Cut C 600 wire EDMs for U.S. manufacturers that want higher performance with lower operating costs. The company says the machines provide optimized cutting speeds and reliable accuracy, while their AC Cut HMI 2 interfaces ease programming through efficient EDM expert modules.

Both models offer manual-mode setup for access to main functions, enabling operators to perform manual measurements and machining. A low-maintenance design reduces the number of components and consumable parts in order to lower operating costs. Along with an integrated anti-collision protection system, the machines include linear glass scales and encoders for high production accuracy.

Easily accessible wire spool holders enable fast and easy changes, the company says. Automatic threading systems thread hard, soft, coated or uncoated wire for reliable lights-out manufacturing.

Both the Cut C 350 and Cut C 600 operate with digital Intelligent Power Generators (IPG) for optimized cutting speeds. With the IPG, the machines can generate surface finishes of 0.25 micron Ra in carbide and 0.30 micron Ra in steel. Additionally, several Expert Intelligent technologies manage surface quality and part precision while streamlining overall operation, according to the company. For wire breakage prevention on variable-height parts, the Power-Expert intelligent function automatically selects power levels. Corner-cutting strategies automatically adjust machining parameters during changes of cutting direction to create accurate sharp angles and small radii.

File and project management features enable operators to configure and sequence jobs, follow job progress, manage digital project documents and access the AC CAM Easy programming system for autonomous operation.

    Originally, wire EDM had two things going against it. It was slow, and often it left an undesirable surface finish. In the last few years, wire EDM builders have fixed the speed problem. Now they're well on their way to fixing the surface finish problem.
