GF Machining Solutions debuted its new Cut 200 Dedicated wire electrical discharge machine (EDM) for aerospace work at IMTS in Chicago. The CUT 200 Dedicated features a built-in A/B tilt/rotary table to easily cut complex aerospace alloy components such as turbine disks using B-axis rotation and +/- 20-degree A-axis tilt. It also incorporates on-machine, in-process inspection that encompasses a measuring probe and supporting software. To significantly reduce non-cut times, the Cut 200 Dedicated boasts extremely fast axis speeds and quick wire threading. The latest generation of GF Machining Solutions’ spark generators allows the machine to cut up to speeds of 38” 2/hour (400 mm2/min) and up to 30-degree tapers in the Z-axis height, while also producing superior part surface finishes and eliminating recast layers and micro-cracks. Additionally, energy saving functionality and advanced software help reduce operational costs and provide increased system connectivity. In addition to the aerospace industry, the Cut 200 Dedicated is well suited for controlling production costs in the mold and die, medical and contract machining industries as well.
