A compact C-axis construction, fixed table and cast iron frame offer stability and force reduction to maintain a precise spark gap between the part and electrode. Regardless of part weight or dielectric volume, the machines deliver consistently high accuracies and surface finishes of Ra 0.1um.
Integrated glass scales preserve repeatability and eliminate the need for recalibration and errors due to backlash and wear.
FORM P 350 machines are equipped with the company’s intelligent power generator and Tecform module, which optimises each pulse, reducing electrode wear and producing high-quality surface finishes.
Segment-dedicated technology eliminates the need to adjust the generator’s parameters. These features ensure reliability, improve operational efficiency and reduce unproductive time.
The company’s iQ (Innovation and Quality) technologies control the erosion of graphite and copper electrodes and help reduce costs. Real-time spark characteristic analysis and setting adjustment for pulse efficiency ensure wear-free spark erosion, precision, efficiency and greater control over the cost of the electrode.
The console’s AC Form human-machine interface (HMI) is based on Windows. Interactive graphics illustrate operations such as measurement and machining cycles for ease of use. It provides descriptions of machining targets, automatic selection of optimal technologies and dynamic parameter adaption.
The machine is supplied with a four-position linear tool changer for System 3R macro tooling. An optional rotary tool changer can be specified which increases the number of electrodes to 160.
The machines can also be paired with the System 3R WorkPartner 1+ robot for unattended night and weekend operations.
With X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 350 × 250 × 300 mm, the machine accommodates workpieces up to 700 × 460 × 275 mm in size.
