GF AgieCharmilles’ groundbreaking : AWC automatically changes wire diameters during machining. The AWC is unique on the market. With AWC, it is possible to make the first cut with a big wire, and automatically change to a small wire (0.05, 0.07, 0.1) to save machining time. As a result, you can cut a part with small wire at a speed similar to cutting with a big wire.
Wire quality optimization : Depending on the target, changing the wire during machining can be very challenging even without changing the diameter. Often, a special and expensive wire is only necessary for finishing cuts (surface quality) or for roughing cuts (speed optimization). To reduce wire costs, a less expensive wire can be used for one or more of the cuts, depending on the customer’s objectives
