MC Machinery’s MV2400-ST EDM is designed for large-part production and is capable of performing submerged cutting as low as 16.5" deep. With an annealing length over 21", the machine can thread the maximum workpiece height both at the start point and through the gap for broken-wire recovery.

The machine’s linear shaft-motor drive and glass-scale feedback contribute to accurate, friction-fee column movement through the X and Y axes. The machine also features the Mitsubishi M800 series control with a 19" touchscreen, providing a user-friendly interface.

The control uses rotational and tilting functionality while showing job-monitoring data in a single view. The navigation interface provides smooth job operation, enabling the quick and accurate completion of production jobs, according to the company.
