The new CUT 1000 OilTech dual-wire wire EDM from GF AgieCharmilles (Lincolnshire, IL) was designed specifically for micro machining and ultra precision applications. The machine uses wires as small as .02 mm (0.0008 in.) in diameter and SF technology to achieve surface finishes down to Ra 0.05 µm in continuous operation and impeccable corner quality.

 

With the AC Duo dual-wire system, shops can work with two wire spools, each with a different wire type. Main cuts, for example, can be done with a 0.10 mm (0.004 in.) wire, then trim cuts completed with a 0.05 mm (0.02 in.) wire. One single wire guide handles wire diameters from 0.2 mm (0.008 in.) to 0.02 mm (0.0008 in.), and the sequence of wire operations is fully automatic and monitored via patented sensors.

 

The Cut 1000 OilTech accommodates workpiece dimensions of 300 mm x 200 mm x 80 mm (L x W x H) (11.81 in. x 7.87 in. x 3.14 in.).
