Mitsubishi’s new FA-VS Advance Wire EDM combines the top features of the FA-S and FA-V machines. The series combines the high speed of the V machine with the FA-S’s high accuracy and surface finish. In addition, the high-speed V500 power supply produces the world's fastest machining speed at 47 sq"/hr, greatly improving machining performance for difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium alloy or heat-resistant high-nickel alloys.

The FA-VS Advance offers improved total part processing time by 20% or more through increased high-speed rough-cut machining and improvements in the finish machining areas. High-speed high-accuracy machining with 3μm straightness is possible with a minimum number of finish cuts. Total part processing speed can also be improved by up to 30% or more even when machining thick workpieces. Machine travel for the FA-20VS measures 19.7 x 13.8 x 11.8, and FA-10VS Advance machine travel 13.8 x 9.8 x 8.6.

The FA-VS Advance Series features the new M700 series Mitsubishi control. This Windows-based system, with 15-inch touch screen, provides easy user interface and simple menu configuration for easy navigation.
