The AgieCharmilles CUT 200/300 MoldTech series of wire EDMs from GF Machining Solutions are equipped with features and capabilities designed for accurate and efficient machining of highly complex parts with variable surface heights or taper cuts. Such components include those for plastic injection molds and aluminum extrusion dies, and for the aerospace and medical industries.

The specialized MoldTech package is available on four of GF Machining’s high-speed wire EDM models built for machining larger, complex workpieces: the CUT 200 mS, CUT 200 Sp, CUT 300 mS and CUT 300 Sp. At its heart is the Taper-Expert smart module for cutting precise large taper angles with high-quality surface finishes. According to the company, this module allows the use of large radius wire guides and soft brass wire, and it compensates in real time for the pivoting point drift in the Z direction when the angle changes. The results are surface finishes of (Ra) 0.2 micron and better angle cuts ranging to 30 degrees.

The dedicated onboard AgieCharmilles AC CUT human-machine interface is said to reduce setup time and improve productivity. It includes the Taper-Expert Advance taper adjustment function that enables operators to fine-tune the CNC parameters and control taper accuracy.
