High Speed Wire and Sinker EDM


The AG40L sinker EDM with linear motor drives offers high speed and high acceleration, which is said to enable an even and natural flushing condition for high part accuracy.

Wire EDM Offers Speed, Accuracy


The AccuteX AX-1165 EDM from Absolute is a heavy-duty wire machine that accommodates workpieces weighing as much as 9,000 lbs.

Stainless Steel Collets


Beaumont Machine offers an ER16 spring collet made from 300 series stainless steel.

Wire-Cut EDM For Oil Dielectric


GF AgieCharmilles’ CUT 1000 OilTech wire-cut EDM is designed for precision machining of materials better-suited to oil dielectric than water-based dielectric. The EDM is equipped with built-in thermo stabilization.

EDM For Semiconductor Industry


Beaumont Machine’s six-axis FH30 EDM features 30" × 16" × 22" of X-, Y- and Z-axis travel; spindle speeds ranging to 3,000 rpm; and rapid speeds ranging to 300 ipm. The machine can accommodate a maximum workpiece weight of 800 lbs.

Automated Cell Combines Wire EDM, Waterjet Technologies


Mitsubishi’s MD+CELL combines the MD+PROII wire EDM with a Suprema DX44 waterjet for high speed and precision in one automated unit, minimizing operator intervention and maximizing unattended run time. The MD+CELL employs a Mitsubishi MELFA six-axis robot to transfer rough-cut pieces from the waterjet to EDM machine for finishing.

Rotary Indexing Spindle For EDM


Hirschmann Engineering has combined the H80R. MNCM high speed rotary indexing spindle with the H1625. AC3 fully programmable, variable speed AC control to produce miniature, round parts with small diameters and fine finishes.

Profile PCD Tools On Wire EDM


The PCD Edge system allows the profiling of polycrystalline diamond (PCD) cutting tools using a Fanuc iD series wire EDM machine. The system consists of programming/probing/cutting software; a microfinish power supply/generator for cutting PCD; a Hirschmann rotary axis; a machine-mounted Renishaw probe; and a tool clamping system.

System Profiles PCD Tools On A Wire EDM


The PCD Edge System is said to allow quick and precise profiling of PCD cutting tools using a Fanuc iC series wire EDM. Available from Methods EDM, the system consists of programming/probing/cutting software, a micro-finish power supply for cutting PCD, a Hirschmann rotary axis, a Renishaw probe (mounted on the EDM) and a tool-clamping system.
