MC Machinery will showcase its latest EDM and precision milling technology, including wire and sinker EDMs, machining centers and automation during IMTS 2022.
New Sinker EDMs
With artificial intelligence (AI) adaptive control technology, the new Mitsubishi SV12P and SG12 sinker EDMs optimize performance, improve productivity, reduce electrical consumption and take the guesswork out of estimating machining time.
The new SVP Series features mAIsmart IDPM3 (Intelligent Digital Power Master Control). Using a state-of-the-art sensor to monitor the total amount of electrode contact area within the work piece, the system automatically changes power conditions based on real time measurement feedback to produce the most efficient burn. This results in up to 40 percent less electrode wear and a reduction of up to 30 percent in machining time.
The benefits of this technology to mold builders include increased machine performance and lower operational costs. It also allows machine operators of all experience levels to produce quality results in complex cavities and shapes.
At IMTS, the SV12P will be outfitted with Erowa Robot Compact 80 milling and sinker automation.
The Gantry EAGLE 800 sinker EDM is best in class for large-part and molding applications, featuring low electrode wear and fast cycle times. Combining the latest in technological innovation with a unique human-centric design, the Gantry Eagle series has on-board components designed to reduce wear and tear, which in turn decreases maintenance and costly downtime. The Gantry Eagle 800 has a large, easy-to-access working area that requires less floor space than other sinker EDM models.
The MV1200-R Mitsubishi wire EDM features the latest machine construction, submerged threading, fiber optic machine communication and power supply technology. As MC Machinery’s best-selling wire EDM, the MV-R series is known to be dependable and easy to use, spurring increased productivity and efficiency.
The MV2400-R Mitsubishi wire EDM is the perfect solution for a wide range of applications, featuring a larger tank capacity and low operational costs. The innovative MV-R series features improvements in machine construction, auto-threading, internal machine communication and power supply technology. It also highlights Mitsubishi’s dedication to high precision, with innovations including the highly reliable non-contact cylindrical drive system on the X, Y, U, and V axis drives.
The MV4800-S Mitsubishi wire EDM is ideal for large part applications up to 20-inches high (standard), and 32-inches high (optional) and can perform submerged cutting up to 20 inches deep. With an annealing length of over 27 inches, this system is capable of threading through the workpiece both at the start point and through the gap.
The MX600 Oil Advance Plus wire EDM combines the ultimate in machine accuracy and surface finish, with wire capability down to .0008″ (.02mm) Dia. The MX600 features a Nano-pulse power supply and DMX-S Super Digital Control sensor, specifically shaping each spark producing surface finishes down to 1.6µ “Ra. This machine provides the perfect opportunity to advance micro-machining capabilities.
The Roku HC658II is the gold standard for hard milling and electrode manufacturing. This machine is a full-bridge style design for supreme accuracy and each way surface is meticulously hand scraped. The highly dependable 32,000 rpm spindle, combined with the best graphite protection in the industry, makes the Roku HC658II the perfect solution for high-precision manufacturing and mold industry customers.
The ANDROID II linear drive milling machine is a machining center designed from the ground up for extremely precise, hard steel and carbide machining with accuracies within ±1µm. With a 60,000-RPM spindle, it boosts productivity on high-precision jobs, simultaneously delivering accuracy, quality, precision and speed
The Ingersoll Eagle V550 graphite machining center has an innovative compact design and features high-speed, high-precision five-axis machining for small graphite electrodes and mold/die components.
