EDM from MC Machinery Handles Larger Parts
MC Machinery’s MV2400-ST, an electrical discharge machine, is specifically designed for larger-part production, capable of performing submerged cutting up to 16.5" deep.
MC Machinery’s MV2400-ST, a wire EDM, is specifically designed for large-part production, capable of performing submerged cutting as deep as 16.5". With an annealing length of over 21", its automatic wire threading system can thread the maximum workpiece height both at the start point and through the gap if needed for a broken wire recovery, the company says.
The EDM also features Mitsubishi’s M800-series control with a 19" touchscreen providing easier user interface than previous models. The control uses rotational and tilting functionality while showing job monitoring and other important information in a single view. The new navigation interface is also said to provide intuitive operation for users of different expertise.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
Beryllium copper offers many benefts to the moldmaker and plastic injection molder, yet questions remain on how to best EDM it, which alloy to specify, where to use it, and is it safe to work with?
Electrical discharge machines, both wire and ram type, have undergone rapid improvements in capability, economical operation, speed and flexibility. New applications are continually emerging as shops discover the advantages of this process.
