SST Consumables Group offers a wire optimized for use on Makino EDMs with HyperCut technology, including U3 and U6 machines.

Single Source Technologies' Consumables Group offers a wire optimized for use on Makino EDMs with HyperCut technology, including U3 and U6 machines. This wire technology is a result of collaboration between Makino and EDM wire manufacturer Bedra, which smelts, draws and coats its own materials in-house. Together, the wire and HyperCut technology provide improved part accuracy and surface finish and reduced cycle time, SST says.

The core material of the HyperCut wire is brass, with an outer coating of gamma-phase brass and a tensile strength 900 MPa. It is available in 0.008", 0.010" and 0.012" diameters on P5, P10, B8 and B16 spools purchased from SST.
