GF Machining new EDM CUT P 350 Click image to enlarge

GF Machining Solutions' new AgieCharmilles Cut P series of wire EDMs provide precise positioning and contouring capabilities and feature efficient power generators, robust designs and intuitive human-machine interfaces (HMIs).

Available from Machine Tool Systems, the series, which include models 350, 550, 800 and 1250, have automation options for lights out operation.

The machines offer surface finishes as smooth as Ra 0.10 μm and boost cutting speeds by up to 20 per cent, claims the machine builder. The machines also feature the company's collision protection technology in the X, Y, U, V and Z axes, that prevents potential machine damage even at maximum axis travel speeds of 3 m/min.

Automation solutions such as Automatic Slug Management (ASM), Automatic Slug Welding (ASW) and a Renishaw probing system, reduce processing time by up to 20 per cent.
