EDM Features Touchscreen Control
Eastec 2019: MC Machinery Systems’ MV1200-R advance features the M800 control, the latest addition to the MV Series.
MC Machinery Systems’ MV1200-R advance features the M800 control, the latest addition to the MV Series.
The MV-R series features an automatic vertical front door, a four-axis linear shaft motor, and a one piece, four-sided hardened table. A fully integrated B axis can be added for “turn-and-burn” and indexing applications.
The M800 control uses a 19" cellphone-like touchscreen display with pinch, flick and tap operation capabilities. The advanced hand pendant includes a 3.5" touchscreen along with new software features that reduce machine setup time. Combined with linear shaft motors, intelligent auto-threading and the lowest wire consumption in the industry, the control is said to boost performance and increase business.
Excessive wire consumption on a wire electrical discharge machine is costly. Technology that allows slower unspooling speeds without compromising results appears to be the answer.
Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.
Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
