MC Machinery Systems will showcase several machines suited for mold and die applications, including its newest sinker EDM, the medium-sized EA12PS, which features a fixed-table traveling-column design with a three-sided drip tank for easy operator access. The tank can be positioned just below the table surface with fluid circulation to better control thermal stability during job setup.

According to the company, the PS series offers a new Z-axis design that uses high-quality ballscrew and LM-way components for increased positioning accuracy during high-speed jump machining.  Jump speeds are 25 m/min. (984"/min) with 1.6-G acceleration.  The newly designed AC Smart Servo system uses 0.05-micron motor resolution with the same resolution in the all-axes absolute-feedback linear scales.

Also at the show, the company will demonstrate how the Lumex Avance 25, a hybrid machine that combines metal laser sintering and high-speed milling, can be used to create complex molds.
