-- To complete its family of high-speed, eCut generator technology Progress wire-cut EDM systems, Agie US has introduced the Agiecut Progress V 4, which features work table dimensions and axis travels to process workpieces up to 51 in x 39.4 in x 19.7 in and 6,600 lbs. The entire working area can be used for detailed machining on large workpieces or for clamping of multiple workpieces of differing sizes and heights. Like the Progress V 2 and V 3, the new system’s eCut generator technology makes it possible to achieve 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. The precision cut also reduces the number of trim cuts needed for surface finishes of 0.2 to 0.7 µm Ra. The Progress can cut up to 47 in2/hr using standard 0.013” coated wire. In addition, the system can achieve speeds up to 37 in²/hr using 0.012” Bercocut brass wire, even in the tightest radii 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. Standard Agie wire guides permit threading of all wire sizes and types (never requiring annealing after a break) and allow taper cutting of ±30º. Another unique feature performs real-time detection of the workpiece cross-section and automatically optimizes generator power. The new Progress V 4 is a fixed table design to ensure positioning accuracy when processing very large, heavy workpieces. The system includes a dual measuring system that continuously measures and corrects the axis positions to achieve accuracy in the µm range. These features and many others on Agie systems guarantee performance that is solidly sustainable over the life of the machine.
