Designed for micromachining, the Form 200 mS die-sinking EDM from GF AgieCharmilles is well-suited for applications such as molds for integrated circuits, cavities for light-emitting diodes and detailed connector forms. When combined with the modular 16- to 160-position rotary toolchanger, the machine is said to offer increased flexibility and speed for micro-component production.
 
The EDM features a MicroTec discharge circuit for power modulation and is said to maximize material removal while accommodating undersize electrodes smaller than 20 microns. GF AgieCharmilles’ iQ technology reduces electrode wear by building a protective layer onto graphite electrodes to maintain edges and detail capabilities throughout the entire burn. The EDM also provides around-the-clock monitoring and process optimization for improved predictability and repeatability.
