Methods Machine (Sudbury, MA) offers the FANUC iMed wire EDM machine that is specially configured for continuous-duty production of parts such as aerospace components, medical instruments and implants. It is a workhorse EDM that combines high performance, low operating costs, and ease of maintenance. It uses economical brass wire (0.004”–0.012” standard), a heavy-duty anti-electrolysis power supply, an energy-saving inverter-controlled DI chiller, AC servo-controlled water level for the work tank, and state-of-the-art FANUC 310i-WA CNC. The control provides nano interpolation, a 15”-color touch-screen monitor, easy-to-use split-screen graphics with sophisticated yet simple drawing capabilities, interactive parts/maintenance assistance, multiple USB ports, and Ethernet connectivity. The FANUC iMed is designed and built for precision. Revolutionary “R” Real World Cutting Technology combines adaptive workpiece thickness control, advanced straightness and corner control, and adaptive pulse discharge control to ensure precision and maximize cutting speed under varying conditions including poor flushing or interrupted cuts. The iMed’s patented twin AC servo wire tensioning system reduces tension variations to ¼ that of conventional wire machines. The FANUC AWF—the world’s fastest, most reliable auto wire feed system—provides flawless threading in just 10 seconds or less, even while submerged.
