Today, the increased pressure on manufacturers across a variety of segments to produce always more complex and accurate components in large volumes makes the choice of machine absolutely critical in terms of precision and reliability. In the context of just-in-time production flows, rejected parts can have devastating effects on timing, costs and a manufacturer’s image. As those manufacturing demands become more extreme, GF Machining Solutions’ AgieCharmilles X series takes highly accurate wire-cutting EDM to a new extreme by eliminating pitch and positioning errors.
GF Machining Solutions’ specific and uncompromising calibration testing on the machines’ production site is similar to the demands manufacturers face daily. The CUT 1000 X and CUT 1000 X OilTech deliver pitch accuracy of ±1.0 μm over 200 mm by 140 mm, and M-shape form accuracy of ±1.0 μm. The CUT 2000 X, CUT 2000 X OilTech, and CUT 3000 X deliver pitch accuracy of ±1.5 μm over 340 mm by 240 mm (460 mm by 320 mm for CUT 3000 X size), and form accuracy of ±1.5 μm.
