Ganesh’s 50-amp, high-capacity ZNC-2350 sinker EDM is designed for precision mold shop work, with a programmable Z axis and automatic fire extinguisher system to enable unattended operation. The machine features precision-ground double-nut ballscrews and a built-in three-axis digital readout with linear scales in all three axis. The linear slideways and ballscrews feature one-shot metered lubrication. Oversized X and Y-axis handwheels provide 0.001" resolution per graduation. Meehanite castings are said to offer increased tensile strength and wear resistance for greater stability and improved surface finish. The machine’s safety devices include arcing depth setting, dielectric temperature and level sensors, a flame detector and the automatic Haylon fire extinguisher system.
