MACH 2018: A Show of strength!

Chain header
GF MACH Stand

We’re showcasing five of our latest ultra high-performance machine tools on our stand - many of which are making their UK debuts at the Show.

All the machines will be under power and will be put through their paces undertaking a range of challenging and innovative machining demonstrations.

Strength in depth

5 machines on blue

The machines being exhibited comprise the following:

• AgieCharmilles CUT P 550: This advanced wire EDM machine takes accuracy, cutting speed and process reliability to a new dimension.

• AgieCharmilles LASER P 400: This innovative laser texturing machine opens up new business opportunities for component manufacturers and mould makers.

• AgieCharmilles FORM P 350 (integrated with System 3R WorkPartner 1+ automation system): This EDM die-sink machine with integrated automation is versatile, reliable and, above all, incredibly productive.

• Mikron MILL P 500U: This powerful, rigid and thermally-stable simultaneous 5-axis machining centre delivers unrivalled precision and surface finishes.

• Mikron HSM 200U LP: This compact, high-speed simultaneous 5-axis machining centre is fast and accurate, and the perfect solution for machining small, high-precision complex parts.

The five machines being exhibited on our Stand represent just a cross-section of the different technology solutions available from GF Machining Solutions.

In addition to our EDM (wire and die-sink), 3-and 5-axis milling, laser texturing and automation solutions - visitors to our Stand will also be able to find out more about our Additive Manufacturing (AM), Micro-Machining and dedicated (5-axis) turbine blade machining technologies.


From strength to strength

The machine tools we’re exhibiting on our stand all have specific strengths that differentiate them from the competition. When you visit our stand make sure you ask us and find out more about these strong points.

Wire EDM Technology Solutions

CUT 550 on white

The AgieCharmilles CUT P 550 is equipped with our latest technologies.

Ask us about:

• The new IPG generator and how it delivers increased cutting speeds.

• The machine’s onboard automation (i.e. Automatic Slug Management and Automatic Slug Retention) and how it improves machine uptime and reduces operational costs


5-axis Milling Technology Solutions

5 axis on white

The Mikron MILL P 500U is a high-performance 5-axis machine and the Mikron HSM 200U LP is a high- speed 5-axis machine.

Ask us about:

• The MILL P 500U’s rigid, thermo-stable design and its impact on accuracy, surface finishes and process reliability.
