In a new era of innovation, the fourth industrial revolution is redefining the way manufacturers work, and GF Machining Solutions’ new, Industry 4.0-ready CUT P wire-cutting EDM machines are engineered to simplify even the most demanding applications.
The AgieCharmilles CUT P series positions manufacturers to realize limitless possibilities, including increased speed, flexibility and quality, by adding new intelligence to their machining processes.
Whether the workpiece is a surgical tool weighing just a few grams or a six-ton die-casting mold, the cutting-edge CUT P machines get to the heart of manufacturers’ most critical applications. Every detail has been fully thought through and conceived to help manufacturers expand their business. That includes consumables like fine wires to boost accuracy and coated wires to enhance productivity; machine mechanics that take the complexity out of perfectly cutting large angles on heavy, difficult-to-machine parts; and SMART and connected solutions optimize productivity and maximize machine uptime.
The productivity-centric solutions increase tooling life, reduce scrapped parts, advance quality control, decrease the need for manual intervention, and allow users to work 100 percent automatically. For example, the AgieCharmilles CUT P series allows speed increases of up to 20 percent and enables surface finishes as fine as 0.08 µm. Automation—from slug management to 100 percent Automation. The final result: Manufacturers spend more time machining—and making money.
The CUT P solutions will be unveiled to customers on June 6th-7th, 2017 at GF Machining Solutions’ Solutions Days in Lincolnshire, IL
