MC Machinery will showcase its latest EDM and precision milling technology, including wire and sinker EDMs, machining centres and automation, at IMTS 2022.
Featured machines at IMTS 2022 will include new Mitsubishi SV12P and SG12 sinker EDMs with artificial intelligence (AI) adaptive control technology.
The new SVP Series features mAIsmart IDPM3 (Intelligent Digital Power Master Control). Using a state-of-the-art sensor to monitor the total amount of electrode contact area within the work piece, the system automatically changes power conditions based on real time measurement feedback to produce the most efficient burn. This results in up to 40 percent less electrode wear and a reduction of up to 30 percent in machining time.
At IMTS, the SV12P will be outfitted with Erowa Robot Compact 80 milling and sinker automation.
Other new systems include the Gantry Eagle 800 sinker EDM for large-part and moulding applications, featuring low electrode wear and fast cycle times. 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.
MC Machinery will also showcase the MV1200-R Mitsubishi wire EDM, with submerged threading, fiber optic machine communication and power supply technology, and the MV2400-R Mitsubishi wire EDM, designed for a wide range of applications, featuring 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. Other new systems include the MV4800-S Mitsubishi wire EDM and the MX600 Oil Advance Plus wire EDM.
In precision milling, MC Machinery will present the Roku HC658II for hard milling and electrode manufacturing. This machine is a full-bridge style design for high accuracy and each way surface is hand scraped. The dependable 32,000 rpm spindle, combined with graphite protection, makes the Roku HC658II ideal for high-precision manufacturing and mould industry customers.
The ANDROID II linear drive milling machine is a machining center designed from the ground up for precise, hard steel and carbide machining with accuracies within ±1µm. With a 60,000-RPM spindle, it boosts productivity on high-precision jobs, simultaneously delivering accuracy, quality, precision and speed
The Ingersoll Eagle V550 graphite machining center has an innovative compact design and features high-speed, high-precision five-axis machining for small graphite electrodes and mold/die components.
The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) will take place September 12-17 at McCormick Place in Chicago. At IMTS 2022 in Booth 338129,
