Displaying Milling and AutomationTechnologies

GF AgieCharmilles will be demonstrating a wide variety of complementary EDM, 5-axis milling and automation technologies at IMTS 2010.

On the milling side, GF AgieCharmilles will be demonstrating a cell comprised of its new HSM 400U LP high speed milling center and an EOSINT M270 laser sintering center. The HSM 400U LP offers increased speed, accuracy and precision through the inclusion of a liquid cooled, linear direct drive motor technology that allows for short setting times and high dynamic rigidity of the attitude control. Additionally, the linear direct drive integrates central oil lubrication to reduce friction-induced wear and ensure excellent, long-term precision.

GF AgieCharmilles’ primary booth will also showcase the HPM 800U high performance machining center, HSM 500 high speed machining center and UCP 600 Vario multi-axis performance speed machining center.

The new CUT 1000 OilTech wire EDM, designed specifically for micro machining and ultra precision applications, uses wires as small as .02 mm diameter and SF technology to achieve surface finishes down to Ra 0.05 ∝m in continuous operation and corner quality.

The CUT 20P wire EDM features a variety of new evolutions, including a new dielectric unit with three vertical Grundfos pumps for increased reliability and easy maintenance. The machine handles wire diameters from .10 mm to .30 mm with ease and offers the flexibility to satisfy requirements in the fields of general engineering and standard stamping. Adding to the smart design of machine’s controls is the inclusion of GF AgieCharmilles' "Speed" technology package, which allows the CUT 20P to achieve competitive results in terms of precision, time and surface roughness when machining jobs with 2 to 4 cuts.

On the diesinking side, GF AgieCharmilles will showcase the FO350 MS. FO350 MS utilizes MicroTEC discharge circuitry, which enables EDM power to be modulated, with the flexibility necessary to maximize material removal.

Also featured in GF AgieCharmilles’ primary booth will be the new LASER 1000 5Ax ablation center.
