Single Source Technologies, Consumables Group (Pine Brook, NJ) offers a unique Gamma phase wire, optimized to ensure the fastest possible part production while maintaining accuracy, Topas plus H.E.A.T. This wire technology breakthrough is the result of two years of collaboration and testing by Makino and Berkenhoff at Berkenhoff's development facility in Germany. Berkenhoff is highly regarded for wire EDM products such as Cobra Cut, MegaCut and Bronco Cut. Topas Plus H.E.A.T. is manufactured specifically to compliment Makino's H.E.A.T. Technology, but also can provide significantly faster machining speeds on all high performance wire EDMs. Initial results of tests utilizing Topas plus H.E.A.T. wire have seen increases in machining speeds by as much as 40 percent compared to traditional single coated wires. Topas plus H.E.A.T. offers a unique approach to Gamma phase wires, utilizing a dual coating that provides more zinc content in the cutting zone, aiding the spark erosion process and providing superior straightness and cleanliness for automatic wire threading. When combining these properties with the Makino EDM features such as BellyWIZARD, H.E.A.T. (High Energy Applied Technology) and the newly developed SurfaceWIZARD, Topas plus H.E.A.T. delivers the most significant performance improvement provided by a coated wire to the EDM industry thus far. Topas plus H.E.A.T. is available in 0.010 and 0.012-inch diameter wires on European and Asian style spools.
