Original Press Release
New Larger Part EDM and LUMEX Additive Machine to Headline MC Machinery Systems' IMTS 2014
Press release date: June 20, 2014
Celebrating more than 10,000 EDM installs this year, Mitsubishi EDM is proud to introduce the MV4800 Advance, the latest addition to the popular MV Series EDM family. This machine’s new, standout features are its cylindrical drive and its increased travel, making it ideal for larger part production. The MV4800 Advance features an extensive travel of 31.5 inches x 23.6 inches x 20.0 inches, and can machine workpieces up to 53.1 inches x 43.3 inches x 20.0 inches. Submerged, it can cut 20 inches deep.
This added size combines with cost-saving design elements to make the MV4800 Advance the best dollar-per-square-foot EDM investment on the market.
Highlights of this machine include a Digital Matrix Sensor (DMX-S) and V350-V generator, which shape each spark to improve surface finish, reduce vibration and minimize electrode wear. This allows for a lower wire speed, reducing wire cost by as much as 60 percent.
Another key feature is the intelligent auto-threading systems designed to anneal up to 27 inches of wire, reducing the curl ratio to less than 10 percent.
The LUMEX Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine is one of the only machines in the world which relies on one-machine, one-process manufacturing of complex molds and parts by fusing metal laser sintering (3D SLS) technology with high-speed milling technology. The machine enables production of complicated parts through total manufacturing using digital engineering and 3D data.
The machine achieves the highest accuracy in part fabrication because metal powders are melted and sintered via laser, while surfaces are precisely milled at high speeds.
Metal laser sintering and milling technologies working in concert will allow engineers to think outside the box and create unique ideas, potentially triggering a departure from conventional manufacturing.
Mitsubishi’s superior products are backed by industry-leading service and support.
