The Fanuc iMed wire EDM is designed for continuous production of parts such as aerospace components, medical instruments and implants. It uses brass wire (0.004" to 0.012" standard), and standard features include an anti-electrolysis power supply, an inverter-controlled DI chiller and AC servo-controlled water level for the work tank. The machine’s Fanuc 310i-WA CNC features nano-interpolation, a 15" color touchscreen monitor, split-screen graphics, interactive parts/maintenance assistance, multiple USB ports and Ethernet connectivity.

According to the company, the machine’s Revolutionary “R” real-world cutting technology combines adaptive workpiece thickness control, advanced straightness and corner control and adaptive pulse discharge control to ensure precision and maximize cutting speed under varying conditions, including poor flushing or interrupted cuts. Accuracy is further enhanced through a thermally insulated cast Meehanite base and table travels with no load-overhang during table movement. Ballscrews for the X and Y axes are double-anchored and encapsulated to prevent contamination.
