GF AgieCharmilles’ Cut 2000 EDM features automatic wire-changing capabilities and is said to be well-suited for micromachining applications. The machine accommodates wires as small as 0.002" in diameter to facilitate the production of micro parts and details.
 
Additionally, the EDM incorporates the efficient Intelligent Power Generator (IPG) and Variocut to increase reliability when machining complex parts and achieving surface finishes as fine as Ra 0.05 μm, the company says.
 

The automatic wire changer is said to enable operators to easily switch between wires of different sizes and materials to optimize both roughing and finishing operations. According to the company, benefits are especially prevalent when working with parts requiring use of a wire 0.004" or smaller in diameter.
