CUT 200 Dedicated Wire EDM
The CUT 200 Dedicated features a built-in, A/B tilt/rotary table to easily cut complex aerospace alloy components such as turbine disks using B-axis rotation and +/- 20-degree A-axis tilt. It also incorporates on-machine, in-process inspection that encompasses a measuring probe and supporting software. The machine delivers some of the industry’s highest levels of speed, performance, quality and productivity – in addition to the ability to control production costs for manufacturing in the aerospace industry as well as the mold and die, medical and contract machining industries.
To significantly reduce non-cut times, the CUT 200 Dedicated boasts extremely fast axis speeds and quick wire threading. The latest generation of AgieCharmilles spark generators allows the machine to cut up to speeds of 38”2/hour (400 mm2/min) and up to 30-degree tapers in the Z-axis height, while also producing superior part surface finishes and eliminating recast layers and micro-cracks. Additionally, energy saving functionality and advanced software help reduce operational costs and provide increased system connectivity.
MIKRON HPM 800U High Performance Machining Center
Designed for the production of tools, molds and high-value parts, the HPM 800U features a sturdy and compact design with a large working space. Maximum X-Y traverse paths are 31.5” each, with a Z-axis that provides 27.6” clearance between the table surface and spindle nose. Workpieces of up to 31.5” diameter and 23.6” height can be machined on five sides.
The HPM 800U’s Step-Tec spindle provides high performance, even in applications such as large steel drilling with high torque requirements. Inline motor spindle options include a 20,000-rpm version for general machining or 28,000-rpm version for machining with small tools. Both options feature the HSK-A63 interface and are perfectly suited to complex open-die surfaces or machining basic materials. The 28,000-rpm spindle uses CoolCore, a water-cooled rotor shaft, to maintain thermal stability and maximize accuracy.
CUT 2000 S Wire EDM
At IMTS 2014, the CUT 2000 S Swiss high-precision wire EDM will be paired with a System 3R WPT1 robot to comprise a completely automated wire EDMing cell.
Available in four configurations, the robot is also compatible with milling and laser equipment. The system gives end users a full range of automation options suited to their applications and provides the capability to address parts and tooling for two machines at once. The robots are affordable, flexible and sleekly designed and accommodate a wide range of part sizes and weights.
Enhancing automated unattended operation and boosting productivity, the CUT 2000 S incorporates the company’s new THREADING-EXPERT module for dependable, fully automatic threading under difficult conditions. It also features the second-generation Integrated Vision Unit (IVU Advance) for in-process inspection and the well-known Agie Charmilles Automatic Wire Changer.
The machine raises the bar in the speed arena. It is one of, if not the, industry’s fastest wire-EDM solutions on the market, thanks to its Intelligent Power Generator (IPG) technology with Direct Power Supply (DPS) module. The machine has been proven to reduce machining time by 30 percent and produce high-quality surface finishes of Ra 0.08µm.
