EDM and Precision Milling Technology

At IMTS 2022 in booth 338129, MC Machinery will showcase its latest EDM and precision milling technology, including wire and sinker EDMs, machining centers and automation.

New Sinker EDMs

With artificial intelligence (AI) adaptive control technology, the new Mitsubishi SV12P and SG12 sinker EDMs are designed to optimize performance, improve productivity, reduce electrical consumption and take the guesswork out of estimating machining time. The proprietary AI technology makes logical use of condition-monitoring data. For example, these new machines can diagnose real-time problems within the burn and directly modify specific parameters for a stable and accurate output. This allows machine operators of all experience levels to produce quality results in complex cavities and shapes. Because the AI technology analyzes current sensor data to determine optimal conditions, it reduces overall electrode wear and costs. By monitoring these parameters, the machine operates more efficiently and can more accurately predict machining times. At IMTS, the SV12P will be outfitted with Erowa Robot Compact 80 milling and sinker automation.

The Gantry EAGLE 800 sinker EDM, designed for large-part and molding applications, features low electrode wear and fast cycle times. Combining the latest in technological innovation with a human-centric design, the Gantry Eagle series has on-board components designed to reduce wear and tear, which in turn decreases maintenance and costly downtime. The Gantry Eagle 800 has a large, easy-to-access working area that requires less floor space than other sinker EDM models, the company reported.

Wire EDMs

The MV1200-R Mitsubishi wire EDM features the latest machine construction, submerged threading, fiber optic machine communication and power supply technology. "As MC Machinery's best-selling wire EDM, the MV-R series is known to be dependable and easy to use, spurring increased productivity and efficiency," said a company spokesperson.

The MV2400-R Mitsubishi wire EDM, designed for a wide range of applications, features a larger tank capacity and low operational costs. The MV-R series features improvements in machine construction, auto-threading, internal machine communication and power supply technology. Innovations including the reliable noncontact cylindrical drive system on the X-, Y-, U- and V-axis drives.

The MV4800-S Mitsubishi wire EDM is suited for large part applications up to 20" high as standard (32" high optional) and can perform submerged cutting up to 20" deep. With an annealing length of over 27", this system is capable of threading through the workpiece both at the start point and through the gap.

The MX600 Oil Advance Plus wire EDM is designed to combine ideal machine accuracy and surface finish, with wire capability down to .0008" (.02 mm) dia. The MX600 features a nano-pulse power supply and DMX-S Super Digital Control sensor, specifically shaping each spark and producing surface finishes down to 1.6µ Ra.

Precision Milling

The Roku HC658II is designed for hard milling and electrode manufacturing. This machine is a full-bridge style design for greater accuracy and each way surface is hand scraped. "The dependable 32,000 RPM spindle, combined with the best graphite protection in the industry, makes the Roku HC658II the perfect solution for high-precision manufacturing and mold industry customers," said the spokesperson.

The ANDROID II linear drive milling machine is a machining center designed for precise hard steel and carbide machining with accuracies within ±1µm. "With a 60,000-RPM spindle, it is engineered to boost productivity on high-precision jobs while simultaneously delivering accuracy, quality, precision and speed," said the spokesperson.

The Ingersoll Eagle V550 graphite machining center has a compact design and features high-speed, high-precision 5-axis machining for small graphite electrodes and mold/die components.
