PCD Erosion Technology from Vollmer Decreases Processing Time
Vollmer of America's QXD200 is a programmable, six-axis, CNC machine designed for erosion of polycrystalline diamond (PCD).
Modular automation enables users to expand the system as demand increases. The six-position electrode and/or grinding wheel changer reduces setup time.
Modular workpiece fixturing plays a vital role in this shop’s quest to win larger, more difficult wire EDM jobs.
A new breed of power generators for wire EDMs has options for reducing, even eliminating, one of the unwanted side effects of this very versatile metalcutting process.
By systemizing die making into repeatable steps, Dies Plus, a division of Otto Engineering, is using its machinists to effectively make dies. This solution relies on a paperless color-coding system to convey the tolerances machinists need to hit in order for tool and die makers to do the final fitting.
