The automated AgieCharmilles Form 20 iRTC sinker EDM from GF Machining Solutions features an integrated rotary toolchanger to boost part-processing flexibility while increasing the capability for continuous, unattended production. Well-suited for manufacturers in the mold and die, aerospace and automotive sectors, the machine can process jobs that require either multiple electrodes or several workpieces varying in size and geometry. It accommodates electrodes as heavy as 22 lbs and as large as 5.9" × 3.94" or ranging to 5.9" in diameter and height. Depending on their size, the changer can hold either eight or 16 electrodes or workpieces.

The machine’s 70-amp Intelligent Power Generator requires just 3.7 kW/hr. at full power. Plus, its design helps optimize the EDM process and reduce electrode wear, as well as provides uniform surface finishes, the company says. Additionally, the EDM features the company's AC Form human machine interface, which centers on user friendliness and intuitiveness to significantly shorten the learning curve for beginner EDM operators.
