Absolute Machine Tools (Booth 103) will exhibit its rigid AccuteX DS-550CMAX die sinker EDM, which will use a one-electrode, deep-rib burning technique to burn a rib at the show. This technique uses the EDM’s dual digital synchronized pulse generator and carefully planned control parameters to achieve optimal cutting conditions. The generator operates in a very high frequency, producing repetitive sparking between the electrode and workpiece, which helps to significantly minimize tool wear.

The machine features X-Y-Z working capacity of 20" × 16" × 14" and worktable dimensions of 32" × 18". Maximum workpiece size is 38" × 27" × 17", and this machine can accommodate workpieces has heavy as 2,970 lbs. Accutex designed the EDM using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure high-accuracy machining. Further contributing to its rigidity is a heavily ribbed, high-grade Meehanite casting. Premium-grade components such as a precise drive system; linear bearings; Class 5 pre-tensioned, fine-finish ballscrews; and high-resolution servomotors are used, along with roller-type linear guideways and optical scales.
