Key Points

  • Four sided table with universal clamping frame.
  • Wire sizes down to 0.006" - 0.013". Finishes of 0.2 Ra.
  • ACvision 5 control runs on Windows XP. Control delivers more power, less space requirement.
  • IPG-VP Dual Generator has 4 power modules and a modern design and technology that delivers finer spark gap for better part geometry and surface finish. It also has low power consumption and takes up a minimum amount of space.
  • Jogger, a handy, manual operations hand box is standard. Use it for set up functions, axis movements, cycle start/stop and emergency stop.
  • ACsetup 3D™ includes a probing system that checks the top surface of a workpiece and programs the angle of the EDM wire to match the A/B angle of the workpiece. After the wire is square to the work being machined, the wire picks up a specified side surface and then rotates the program to match the C-skew of the block. The system then uses the wire to pick up a reference on the workpiece using one of the pick-up macros in ACvision. These values are automatically loaded into the control under a specific file name. This feature can be programmed off-line and executed unattended. ACsetup 3D saves an average of 20 minutes per part when compared to traditional methods of workpiece set up.
  • Standard Pieceinsert™ control feature allows the "pausing" of a job in progress in order to "insert" and machine another (emergency) workpiece, with the click of a mouse. When finished, you can automatically return to the exact point where the previous job was paused and "resume" erosion.
  • Access your GF AgieCharmilles EDM off-line through the standard Ethernet connection. This unique feature enables the user to monitor or run the GF AgieCharmilles system from a remote location. It also provides for real time support from the local applications and service agent.
