Discover the Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS)

Are you still cutting blind?

From GF Machining Solutions comes a revolution in wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM): Spark Track, with its state-of-the-art Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS) module, puts EDM intelligence at your fingertips. The more spark distribution information available on the wire, the more you can push the limits of the machining process without risking wire breakage.
Don't worry, just cut.

Your advantages

By cutting these specific work pieces with the ISPS option enabled the process reached a higher efficiency:

Spark Track

Through 50 years of innovation in the area of Wire EDM technology, GF Machining Solutions has become the acknowledged leader in spark generation and control. In 2019 we paved the way for the next generation of Wire EDM machines by mastering each single spark separately, with Spark Track:

  • Cutting-edge sensors detect in real-time where each discharge takes place along the wire, as well as its intensity
  • This data is then processed using dedicated software
  • The information processed results in a multitude of application modules to better control the cutting process

Intelligent Spark Protection System, the first Spark Track module

Thanks to the data collected and processed by Spark Track, the ISPS module is able to use this information to automatically control and adapt the cutting parameters of your Wire EDM machine, ensuring an optimized, safe cutting process:

  • No wire breakage
  • Machine cuts at maximum efficiency at all times; automatic adaptation to differing conditions
  • No need for fine tuning, get a perfect result from the very first cut
