Drive speed and quality

The iGAP generator technology helps mold makers use die-sinking EDM to achieve a smaller, therefore more precise, spark gap at higher speed, thereby addressing their need for greater productivity and speed. iGAP varies the spark power from the front and sides of the electrodes as needed. Spark power increases only when necessary also helps preserve electrodes, adding to the gains provided by ISPG technology.

Human-machine interface (HMI) increases productivity

The development of this new AC FORM HMI is based on a study carried out with numerous mold makers in order to streamline the mold-making technique. This ease of use, which has made GF Machining Solutions interfaces so successful, has not only been maintained, but has been developed even further to support mold makers during die-sinking.

Part weight

The construction as a short C frame and the oversized casting guarantee mechanical stability and precision throughout the life of the sinker EDM machine. In addition, the robustness of the die-sinking EDM machine absorbs all the machining forces to maintain a precise gap between the part and the electrode.

Position resolution

To obtain reliable positioning accuracy, only linear glass scales are effective. They eliminate all the classic errors, such as backlash, expansion and wear effects. The axis servo control system developed by GF Machining Solutions for die-sinking EDM machines is a closed loop measurement solution designed to provide infallible accuracy, whatever the travel.

Productivity

Automation keeps production going whatever the time. Your results are shorter lead times, higher productivity and quicker payback of capital invested in your die-sinking EDM machines. With System 3R Automation solutions, production can continue running round the clock, seven days a week. The possibilities are endless with our die-sinking EDM solutions.

Machining stability

Available on the AgieCharmilles FORM P 600 as a variant, the thermostabilization provides perfect and accurate machining over time and whatever the temperature conditions during die-sinking EDM machining.
