Precision Wire EDMs and Grinding Technology

KGK International will exhibit Seibu's newest precision wire EDMs and Kent's surface and universal cylindrical grinders.

Seibu Precision Wire EDMs

Seibu's new M50B SMARTNC precision wire EDM will be demonstrating the patented core stitch technology that welds the slug to parent material which is then easily tapped out. An operator can reduce cutting-off process time by up to 97%. The M50B wire EDM has axis travels of 19.7" x 13.8" x 12.2". The M50B features the new 21.5" SMARTNC control, which includes over 4,000 cutting conditions, and the new CAM Station that converts 3-D files into NC codes. The control will also demonstrate Seibu's 5-axis ability to turn and burn. The M50B comes standard with Seibu's all in one 17" annealing AWF. The wire is first annealed, which straightens the wire as it passes through the round wire guides. This reliable AWF can thread through wire break points while the machine is submersed.

Also on display will be the Ultra MM50B SMARTNC wire EDM that provides a table positioning accuracy of ±1µm and can thread .002" diameter wire.

Kent Grinders

Kent's surface and rotary grinders will be on display in the KGK booth. The Kent KGS-63 (12" x 24") programmable down feed surface grinders' castings are made of high-quality ribbed cast iron tempered to achieve extreme rigidity. The machine's X and Z slideways are laminated with Turcite-B to ensure smooth movement regardless of the part weight on the working table. The spindle is supported by preloaded, P4 angular contact ball bearings to provide a maximum runout of 0.00002" for stable and accurate grinding. A Mitsubishi programmable logic controller with a 6" color LCD touchscreen panel constitutes the grinder's main control.

Also on display will be the Kent KGR-600 CNC rotary grinder with a maximum diameter of 24". KENT KGR CNC rotary grinder castings are designed with high quality ribbed cast iron, which gives the machine a sound base and elimination vibration. The castings also have a box type design that further enhances the machine rigidity resulting in precision parts.
