A Wide Range of Advanced Machining Technologies

Booth S-8754: The new AgieCharmilles CUT 2000 X advanced wire EDM from GF Machining eliminates pitch and positioning errors that would otherwise result in scrapped parts and increased production costs. Using its precise positioning capabilities, shops can easily achieve ± 1.5 μm pitch accuracy over 340 mm x 240 mm and the same for M-shape form accuracy.
GF Machining Solutions will display their new AgieCharmilles CUT 2000 X advanced wire EDM, full 5-axis additions within the Mikron MILL S and X product line, advanced automation systems, additive manufacturing, System 3R automated laser texturing, and die sinking and wire EDM machine technologies that target the aerospace, medical and die/mold industries.

Reduce Processing Time of Large Mold Tooling, Die Cast Parts

The EDNC21 sinker electrical discharge machine from Makino uses dual heads and Hyper-i control, HyperCut technology, and a new HS-Rib high speed Z-Axis to provide an industry-changing advantage in improved productivity that lowers the tool build time for extra-large workpieces, such as automotive bumper and fascia molds.
The dual-head configuration of the EDNC21 from Makino enables shops to process multiple fine details in a part at the same time, reducing total processing time at the same level of accuracy and surface finish as sinker EDMs one-tenth its size.
