The Agiecut Progress V 2 established a new benchmark for wire EDM cutting speed at 47 in²/hr. using standard 0.013” coated wire. Now part of Agie’s groundbreaking V Series, the Progress will be paired with a System 3R Workpal palletized workpiece changer to form an automated cell. The Workpal handles up to eight pallets for workpieces up to 12-inch square, feeding them into the Progress for up to 80 hours of uninterrupted processing. Among the host of innovations being introduced on V Series wire EDMs are the IPG-V generator and Agievision 5 control based on the Windows XP platform. Processing speed, surface finish and accuracy are all improved, along with user-friendliness of the Agievision control, which provides enhanced 3D graphics, real time adjustments, and direct-select activity bars. The Progress system’s eCut generator technology makes it possible to get surface finishes as good as 0.8 µm Ra with one precision cut – a process that is completed in half the time required by technologies that incorporate a main cut and trim cut. In addition, the faster precision cut requires 40% less filter and resin and results in 60% less wire consumption. Unlike competitive systems, the Progress can achieve speeds up to 37 in²/hr. even in the tightest radii (and even during a precision cut) due to Agie’s unique Wire Bending Control. Other standard features on the Progress improve speed in another way – by reducing idle times. With 15-second wire threading, the Progress has greatly reduced all wire-related barriers to speed. Agie’s standard wire guide permits threading of all wire sizes and types (never requiring annealing after a break) and allows taper cutting of ±30º.
