AccuteX EDM Introduces New 5-Axis Wire EDM Offering Superb Finishes
[MASON, OH] AccuteX EDM, a Division of Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. has introduced its new "SP-300iA" 5-Axis CNC Wire EDM. This machine features the latest "Microsparking Technology", the MST-II function that provides exceptional part finishes. Aerospace and medical industries in particular have demands for low recast and fine finishes. Further, this machine is built for rigidity with a Meehanite cast honeycomb base, highly-ribbed column that is mounted with oversized UVZ axis and reinforced lower arm for added stiffness. All castings are stabilized and subjected to rigorous testing to insure maximum strength, high precision, and durability.
The X, Y, Z working range is 13.8 in. x 9.8 in. x 8.7 in. U and V axes are both 3.15 in. The U-V axis mechanism is placed in a cabinet above the working area, assuring optimal rigidity and protection from humidity and physical damage. The axes are driven by means of closed-loop AC servo motors with 0.000004 in. resolution and controlled by a linear glass scale feedback system. The SP-300iA also incorporates the latest generation ball-retainer type guideways which reduce 90 percent of friction variation compared to conventional guideways.
The workpiece mounting table is made of hardened stainless steel, offers easy accessibility and is designed as a standard clamping system also. This creative solution reduces setup time. The table can also accommodate most commercial fixturing systems. All the operations relating to wire handling have been simplified on the SP-300iA. The machine is equipped with an annealing, fully automatic wire threading system with a tip disposal unit. AccuteX's patent-pending servo-controlled wire threading technology, together with multi-detectors, makes it the fastest and most reliable AWT system available today.
More about AccuteX EDM
AccuteX EDM is a division of Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. and is the exclusive North American importer for builders AccuteX Technologies. AccuteX EDM offers a complete line of wire and die sinker EDM equipment to manufacturing facilities in the United States and Canada. These high-quality, user-friendly machines provide excellent value for manufacturers seeking EDM systems that are both economical and well-built. The company started over 15 years ago with a group of engineers who shared similar ideas about wire EDM technologies. Working together as an engineering team for the Taiwanese government's research and development arm at The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Taiwan, they decided to merge their knowledge and ingenuity to form AccuteX Technologies. AccuteX Technologies developed all of its EDM wire technology in-house and is well-known for its groundbreaking and user friendly Windows-based CE control and high-performance auto wire threading. AccuteX Technologies also offers machines delivering 6-axis control with 5-axis simultaneous interpolation for aerospace and medical-class operating performance.
