Both industries in particular require excessive demands for low recast and fine finishes.
AccuteX (Mason, OH) CNC Wire EDM machines have some of the best proven features for any shops EDM machining requirements. The AccuteX SP-500iA is equipped with servo-control wire-threading technology that is the world’s fastest and most reliable automatic wire threading system on the market.
The SP-500i 5-axis wire EDM features the NEW GENERATION MST-II Microsparking Technology. The MST-II utilizes the most modern technologically advanced Embedded Programmable Gate Array (EPGA semiconductor) within its CNC control to simultaneously discharge the proper amount of energy directly to the servo unit, stabilizing spark to cut and produce the finest of finishes for the aerospace and medical industries.
Both industries in particular require excessive demands for low recast and fine finishes. By utilizing this advanced electrotechnology, the AccuteX SP-500i has consistently produced test cuts that surpass demands of part production in those high-demand industries.
The X, Y, Z working range is 19.7 in x 11.8 in x 11.8 in and the U and V axes are both 3.9 in. The U-V axis mechanism is placed in a cabinet above the working area, assuring optimal rigidity and protection from humidity and physical damage.
The axes are driven by means of closed-loop AC servo motors with 0.000004 in resolution and controlled by a linear glass scale feedback system. The SP-500i also incorporates the latest generation ball-retainer type guideways reducing 90 percent friction variation compared to conventional guideways.
The SP-500iA is equipped with an annealing, fully automatic wire threading system (AWT) with a tip disposal unit. AccuteX’s unique intelligent servo-control wire-threading technology, together with multi-detectors make it the world’s fastest and most reliable (threading at wire break point) automatic wire threading system on the market.
The SD Master (stable discharge) is a standard accessory that powers the servo system reducing wire breakage during production. Stabilizing the discharge of electrolysis through the cutting wire also raises machining repeatability to produce exceedingly accurate and consistent parts.
Remote Master enables massive flexibility on the part its operators allowing real-time monitoring of cutting time, efficiency, and status of a particular job from within the office or home PC. There is no need to worry about capability with any CAD/CAM system because the feature has been written for allowing comprehensive software integration, saving money and time. Remote Master also allows an operator to assign machining jobs from a distance and begin cutting immediately.
Depending on different cutting data, wire diameter, angle and workpiece thickness, the CE based Windows control coupled with Corner Control automatically sets the best parameters to maintain the best corner cutting performance, accuracy and proud to boast the fastest cutting speed on the market.
Anti-Crash Protection is a optional feature on all axes (X, Y, U, V and Z). Rapid Traverse rates are as high as 51.1 ipm with simultaneous wire federates of 0–590 ipm using electrode wire diameter ranging from .004 in — .013 in.
The machine body was designed by Finite Element Analysis (FEA) meaning that the Meehanite cast is a honey-combed base, highly ribbed column mounted on an oversized UVZ Axis and reinforced lower-arm to increase stiffness. All castings are stabilized and subjected to rigid testing to insure maximum strength, high precision and long-life durability.
