MC Machinery Systems Inc. hosted its EDM National Open House on September 26 at its Elk Grove Village, Illinois, headquarters. Machining demonstrations and technical seminars on EDM and milling technologies and strategies were the order of the day for more than 250 guests.

Of note was the introduction of two new EDM machines: the MV4800 M800 Wire EDM, featuring the new cylindrical-drive technology unique to the company’s MV Series wire EDM line, and the SV12P Sinker EDM, featuring AI Technology (MAISART) to monitor jump motion in real time and reduce waste jump time, shorten machining time and reduce electrode wear.

Seminar presentations centered on tips for optimizing machining using both EDM and milling machining centers, including hard milling tips and tricks presented by Seco Tools, five-axis machining advantages for mold and die making presented by OPS-Ingersoll and remote monitoring and digitization of EDM sinker and wire operations using MC Machinery Systems’ Remote360 ERP system.

Attendees also had the opportunity to visit with several related supplier companies, including Erowa, Heidenhain, Hirschmann, Kennametal, Poco Graphite, OSG USA, CAM-Tool, Mastercam, Hypermill and others.

    With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
