Mitsubishi EDM (Wood Dale, IL) has the experience and equipment solutions to help U.S. manufacturers achieve maximum productivity in every industry. Mitsubishi’s MD+CELL combines the MD+PROII wire EDM with a Suprema DX44 waterjet for high speed and precision in one automated unit. These technologies work closely together to minimize operator intervention and maximize unattended run time for piece-part manufacturers.

The MD+CELL uses a Mitsubishi MELFA six-axis robot to transfer rough cut pieces from the waterjet to be finished on the EDM machine. Combining these technologies ensures that sales and technical support always comes from a single-source provider.
Mitsubishi brings a new level of performance to waterjet with the addition of a Mitsubishi control and servo system. The
Suprema waterjet includes an all-stainless steel work tank and utilizes 22-inch I-beam construction with 40mm ball screws for superior accuracy and machine performance.

The Suprema’s Mitsubishi 700 Series CNC control delivers advanced programming capabilities for high-precision machining and unprecedented productivity. The control is operated from a 15-inch waterproof screen, with improved graphics and NC design to simplify operation.

The MD+PROII wire EDM’s stacked-filter design reduces floor space requirements by 20 percent. The machine’s upper- and lower-head design improves durability and reduces setup and maintenance costs. It comes standard with .004"~ .012" wire capable automatic threading and all-axis absolute control, which enables highly accurate positioning without returning to zero after power failure. The simplified auto-threading and wire drive systems reduce part costs and extend maintenance cycles.

The MD+PRO II’s V350 II power supply with anti-electrolysis technology helps achieve top machining performance. PM4 (Power Master 4) has stepped shape capabilities, allowing multiple parts with different shapes and thickness to be machined without setting specific electrical conditions. SL (Step Less) Control improves accuracy for finishing step shape workpieces.

Mitsubishi is focused on providing the industry’s most responsive service and support.
