Master temperature fluctuations

The sophisticated and unique thermo control system compensates for temperature variations by using temperature-stable dielectric to cool the X, Y and Z glass scales, as well as the Z axis ball screw. In assembly, the sinker EDM machine body is thermally isolated from the high-speed Z axis, which is cooled with dielectric fluid.

Extreme positioning accuracy

The AgieCharmilles FORM X die-sinking EDM series’ structure has been specially designed with a frame of polymeric material that ensures constant positioning accuracy: The machine’s extreme robustness means that all the mechanical forces are absorbed so that an accurate gap between the part and the electrode is maintained.

Part weight

Experience superior mechanical stability and precision across the life of the die-sinking EDM machine, thanks to its short C axis construction and oversize cast iron frame. As a result, your accuracy is uncompromised by part weight or dielectric volume and your precision is further advanced.

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.

Surface finish

The AgieCharmilles FORM X series meets—in an exemplary way—the market demand for easy-to-control, automated production. Each level of Automation is easily accommodated due to this sinker machine’s modular, space-saving design, adding a tool changer up to 140 electrodes or System 3R’s WPT1+ external robot.

Reach unprecedented levels of quality

Ramp up your efficiency and quality, thanks to this die sinker’s new discharge circuit allowing spark erosion power modulation and the flexibility to maximize material removal. Achieve greater finishing detail by reducing the gap to a few microns. You’ll achieve higher machining yields while preserving electrode geometry, due to an extremely low rate of electrode wear.

Boost manufacturing efficiency

Thank to the ISPG generator micromachining module, the AgieCharmilles FORM S 350 die-sinking EDM solution process combining profile accuracy and productivity, always maintaining highest accuracy and perfect details.

3DS mold surface texturing

With 3DS, your surfaces are qualified in both crater height and width and the craters left by die-sinking EDM are perfectly controlled. You achieve a structure so smooth and uniform that it cannot be seen by the human eye. This technology dramatically reduces plastic adherence towards mold inserts, maximizes plastic part demolding efficiency and reduces plastic injection cycle time.

Accurca-C, the best high-performance axis on the market

A rugged C axis delivers high positioning precision regardless of electrode weight (up to 25 kg) and full machine current. Completely integrated, the C axis is easily extended to increase X and Y travels when machining very large parts. Integrated into the quil of the Z axis, the AgieCharmilles S series' C axis is incredibly flexible, producing perfect curved recesses and undercuts
