The TrodeMaster from Methods Machine Tools (Sudbury, MA) is a modified Fanuc RoboDrill high-speed vertical machining center specially equipped for cutting graphite EDM electrodes. With full enclosures and a complete Torrit dust collection system, it is ideal for small job shops as well as large in-house EDM facilities. The VMC uses economical 30-taper tooling and offers exceptional 3-D contouring capabilities at a fraction of the cost of competing machines. With feedrates to 2125 ipm, accelerations to 1.5 G or more, a 24,000 rpm Big Plus spindle, and 0.9-second tool changes, it dramatically shortens the machining time of even the most complex electrodes. The VMC’s CNC comes standard with many advanced performance features that are normally options, including AI Contour Control II with 1000 block “look-ahead,” Jerk Control, and a 0.4 ms block processing speed.
