Quality-boosting, cost-saving generator

At the heart of the AgieCharmilles FORM E 350 sinker EDM solution is GF Machining Solutions’ proprietary, high-end Intelligent Speed Power Generator (ISPG). The electrical discharge machining (EDM) process is continuously optimized and that dramatically reduces electrode wear. Process control takes just a fraction of a second and produces an extremely uniform surface finish.

Human-machine interface (HMI) increases productivity

The development of this new AC FORM HMI is based on a study carried out with numerous mold makers in order to streamline the mold-making technique. This ease of use, which has made GF Machining Solutions interfaces so successful, has not only been maintained, but has been developed even further to support mold makers during die sinking.

FORM E 350 - FORM E 600

Footprint

Starting with a space-saving footprint that takes your valuable floor space into consideration, the AgieCharmilles FORM E 350 sets market standards for compact die-sinking EDM machines.

Position resolution

The use of a cast iron and the short C frame design ensures static and dynamic rigidity of the mechanical structure. Positioning accuracy is guaranteed by linear glass scales on the cross table. The die sinker’s ergonomics are engineered to provide the most favorable ratio between floor spare and work surface.

Unattended machining

The new AgieCharmilles FORM E sinker EDM series allows you to considerably increase your production by reducing human intervention. Thanks to the Linear Tool Changer (LTC) and an external robot from System 3R, you can easily take your production to the next level of die-sinking efficiency.

Surface finish

Several options are available to extend the already impressive AgieCharmilles FORM E series capabilities. These include the GammaTEC technology to optimize die sinking machining for shiny surface finishes on parts.
