GF Machining Solutions will feature its new AgieCharmilles CUT F Series Wire EDM that balances high precision with productivity during EASTEC 2023.
Visitors to the company’s booth will get a first glimpse of this next-generation Wire EDM technology ahead of its global market launch later this year.
The CUT F 600 Series provides high production control and flexibility for precise machining and surface finish capability. The series builds on GF Machining Solutions wire EDM technology development with thermal stabilization, enhanced axis encoders, improved ball screw precision and machine designs that reduce the effects of leverage and vibration for tight-tolerance part production.
The CUT F 600 optimizes safe cutting processes thanks to the company’s Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS) Spark Track platform. Also available is the optional iWire adaptive software module to reduce wire consumption and RFID SMART wire spools that store wire characteristics traceability-related data.
Users can easily program the machines with the UNIQUA human/machine interface (HMI) that combines functionality and ergonomics for every skill level on a 19-inch vertical screen. The UNIQUA HMI adapts to either sequential or object-oriented programming and is compatible with all major CAD/CAM programs.
Also during EASTEC, GF Machining Solutions will feature its Mikron MILL S 200 U, a vertical high-speed machining centre with unrestricted 5-axis machining capability. The machine is designed for precision and surface quality and is well suited for tool and mouldmaking and other high-precision parts production such as watch-making and micro mechanics, electrode production, medical implants and devices, and fluidics. For superior vibration damping and machining stability, the Mikron MILL S 200 U is built on a polymer concrete base and incorporates a robust 50,000 rpm spindle along with a separate cooling circuit for all linear axes and the circular swivel unit.
Micro machining and small part precision is achieved with the use of low tactile forces in the Z axis and precise laser optics for measurement of very small tool diameters ranging from 25 mm to 20 mm. Multiple tool storage configurations are available with 30, 60 or 150 tool positions, and the Mikron MILL S 200 U accepts a full range of automation and tooling solutions from GF Machining Solutions to further increase productivity.
EASTEC 2023 takes place May 16-18 in West Springfield, MA. GF Machining Solutions will be at Booth 1728.
