CUT X series

Extreme accuracy, simple and fast

Video and brochure

100 years of experience condensed in the best-ever wire EDM machine

  • Extreme accuracy

    Optimized mechanics, new 3D-printed heads design and AI-based thermal management are the basis for unprecedented accuracy and surface quality.

  • Simple

    It means easy and flexible for experts as for beginners. Thanks to the collision protection, the wire annealing before threading, a new HMI and the option to change from open to closed guides in only few minutes.

  • Fast

    We cut at unbeatable speed with the Intelligent Power Generator with Direct Power Supply (IPG-DPS) and the unique Twin-wire technology.


Revolutionary heads


Easily exchangeable open and closed guides


Clever thermal compensation

AI-based thermal management

Algorithms and sensors predict and reduce  thermal impacts and compensates for axis deformation

 

Ultra high pitch accuracy

Positioning accuracy of +/- 1 micron in environmental temperature changes up to +/- 2,5 Celsius


Twin wire: Automatic Wire Changer (AWC)

Automatic Wire Changer

AWT: Automatic Wire Threading

Wire annealing

AWT’s annealing process heats the wire between the brake and the lower working head, then chills it with a jet of air and stretches it to reduce its diameter, annealing and extending the wire to a specific length. This produces burr-free thermal cutting and a conically shaped end that is easy to insert through the guides and the workpiece.

Benefits

  • Ensure job processing with correct rethreading even under the most difficult conditions
  • Automatically cut multiple openings in die blocks and progressive dies during unattended operation
  • Enable smooth automation implementation


UNIQUA HMI

 

UNIQUA is the new GF Machining Solutions human/machine interface (HMI) for wire EDM machines. It represents the pinnacle of more than a century of EDM technology – and the perfect combination of optimal functionality and usability (ergonomics) from our previous HMIs.
