AgieCharmilles AC Progress VP4

The high degree of precision of the AgieCharmilles AC Progress VP is achieved by perfectly combining major elements, such as the machine’s high static rigidity, measuring system that includes both transducers and optical scales, and the control unit. This means all individual elements works to their strenghts under a bespoke control designed specifically for EDM.

The advantage of using 2 different wires on a single-wire system


The AgieCharmilles AC Progress VP’s unique wire drives system allows a very special function in which two wires can be used in a single contour. Duotec in itself can massively reduce the time taken and running cost’s normally attributed to finer wire jobs. After carrying out the main cut on a larger diameter of wire a finer diameter wire is used to detail corners and provide the final trim cuts. Other benefits of Duotec includes a more robust process as the majority of the material removal is completed on a larger diameter wire.
