Posted: April 13, 2015

The Mitsubishi MV-2400 wire EDM that Evansville installed features a new M700 series control with 15 in touch screen that provides an easy user interface. The machine also includes a new non-contact Cylindrical Drive System.

Evansville Tool & Die, Inc. (Evansville, IL), a manufacturing service provider specializing in dies, thermoform molds, trim tools and production machining, has recently added significant capacity and capability with the purchase of two Mitsubishi wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) centers from.

“We replaced two of our oldest machines for larger capacity and faster cutting speed,” said the company owner, Jack Droste. “Those machines were 25 and 26 years old and we were still using them every day, but it was time to replace them. Now with the capability of cutting up to 20 in thick, these additions enable us to do work we couldn’t before.”

The new Models MV-4800 and MV-2400 machines are two different sizes within the same series from Mitsubishi. These advanced wire EDM systems feature the new M700 series control with 15 in touch screen, providing easy user interface. The machines also feature several new innovations, including a new non-contact Cylindrical Drive System. The MV Series is highlighted by several advances in machine construction, auto-threading, internal machine communication, power supply technology and operating cost reduction.
