AccuteX EDM Introduces Heavy-Duty Die Sinker EDM
MASON, OH† --† AccuteX EDM, a Division of Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. recently introduced its rigid “DS-550CM” Die Sinker EDM. Its X,Y, Z working capacity is 20 in. x 16 in. x 14 in. The work table size is 32 in. x 18 in. Maximum workpiece size is 47 in. x 27 in. x 17 in., and this machine can accommodate workpiece weights up to 2,970 lbs. Accutex designed the EDM using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure high accuracy machining. Further contributing to its rigidity is a heavily ribbed, high-grade Meehanite casting. Premium grade components, such as precise drive system, linear bearings, class 5 pre-tensioned fine finish ballscrews, and high resolution servo motors are used, along with roller type linear guideways, and optical scales.
Options for the DS-550 for greater flexibility include a built-in C axis with 360-degree indexing, an automatic electrode changer, dielectric cooler, and custom tooling package. Customers can perform 3-axis machining in 6 directions, multi-cavity, circular, square and any angle orbiting, internal/external spherical, and 45-degree corner machining. Further, the EDM can do 3-axis linear machining, 2-axis arc machining, and offers helical machining electrode compensation.
The Accutex control’s 15 in. industrial grade, LCD monitor is easy to read and in full color. Its software supports dialogue options for simple, straight-forward programming and operation.
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.
