Beaumont Machine (Batavia, Ohio) adds the 5-axis servomotor S-EW3 to its wire EDM line. Designed by Optimum Machine Solutions and built by a Taiwanese manufacturer established in 2006, the $69,900 machine combines approach control, corner control, auto threader, and training software in a compact, 42-square-foot footprint (including filtration unit).
Programmable reduced-power settings eliminate wire breaks on lead-in cutting. Automatic adjustment to power settings and feed rate improve corner accuracy. Auto wire threading (AWT) is low maintenance and highly capable.
The discharge power supply has a high-speed voltage-withstanding metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET), a modular design discharge power unit and real-time sparking pulse control.
The CNC controller features a Windows operating system, an independently developed CNC control device, 15-in color LCD, 64-bit industrial computer, and 2GB CompactFlash memory card. It includes keyboard, mouse stand, RS-232, USB disk, network, and FTP.
E-learning training software enhances the customer’s experience.
Options: 3-phase transformer, short message service, remote monitor system, jumbo feeder, and a wire guide on top and one on the bottom.
