LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.– At this year’s AmeriMold show, taking place June 12 – 13 in Rosemont, Ill., GF AgieCharmilles will spotlight its MIKRON HSM 200U LP (linear performance) milling machine and its FORM 20 sinker EDM in booth 205.
The MIKRON HSM 200U LP brings speed, efficiency, precision and true 5-axis simultaneous milling to the machining of small, highly complex components. Linear motor technology in the main machine axes and optimized direct-drive motors for the B and C axes result in high precision and superior part surface finishes as fine as Ra 0.05 μm. Furthermore, the machine’s powerful 50,000-rpm, 11.4-hp Step-Tec spindle also assists in providing excellent surface finish and part detail.
GF AgieCharmilles’ FORM 20 provides the industry’s best price-to-performance ratio and has outstanding connectivity capability, overall enhanced performance and a modern compact design. The machine meets the cost-effective part production needs of today’s manufacturing industries, including general mold and die.
The FORM 20 is one of the first machines available with the new, recently developed AC Form HMI (human machine interface) CNC that centers on user friendliness and intuitiveness to significantly shorten the learning curve for beginner EDM operators. The machine excels in burning deep ribs in such parts as mold cores.
At the heart of the FORM 20 is GF AgieCharmilles’ proprietary, high-end Intelligent Power Generator (IPG) with available IQ zero electrode wear technology. With every machine pulse, the 70-amp generator on the FORM 20 continuously optimizes the EDM process and dramatically reduces electrode wear/cost as well as provides extremely uniform surface finishes. The machine reliably generates surface finishes of Ra 0.1 micron and radii down to 0.0007”.
