HoleMaster Hole Driller EDM machines are now available with fourth- and fifth-axis capabilities. An optional compound rotary table provides precise A- and B-axis positioning, extending the capabilities of these machines to the submerged or unsubmerged EDM drilling of angled holes and slots. Typical applications include cooling and/or exhaust gas holes in turbine rings and blades; medical prosthetics and instruments; electronic housings and components; laboratory and analytical equipment; optical instrumentation; and extrusion dies for glass and composite fibers.

HoleMaster Hole Driller EDM machines are now available with fourth- and fifth-axis capabilities. An optional compound rotary table provides precise A- and B-axis positioning, extending the capabilities of these machines to the submerged or unsubmerged EDM drilling of angled holes and slots. Typical applications include cooling and/or exhaust gas holes in turbine rings and blades; medical prosthetics and instruments; electronic housings and components; laboratory and analytical equipment; optical instrumentation; and extrusion dies for glass and composite fibers.

The rotary axis is programmed and controlled using the company's standard CNC. It can be installed on new machines prior to shipment or easily retrofit to existing machines in the field.

The rotary axis speeds production of 4- and 5-axis parts by simplifying fixturing and eliminating the need to refixture parts. It accommodates parts to 23.5" x 23" x 12.75" with working cubes to 14.75" x 14.75 x 12".

    Hole making is considered the most frequently performed metalworking operation. Hole making on a micro level, say 0.010 inch and smaller, is where it gets interesting. This shop is very good at making small holes.

  • CNC Rotary Table Indexer For EDM Applications

    The JNC140-EDM CNC rotary table indexer contains a sealing system that is adaptable for use in submersible applications with EDM dielectric fluids. The sealing system is combined with the Auto Air Purging System that removes any possible condensation accumulation inside the indexer housing. The indexer weighs 27 kg and has a stainless steel face plate with a diameter of 140 mm and a center height of 110 mm.

  • Vertical Vise For Wire EDM

    The company’s newly designed vertical vise, Model H4537 for use with its Fixturing System 4000, provides clamping of one or two independent workpieces in the same setup. Two separate clamping jaws are incorporated in the vise that requires tightening the central screw. No supporting spacers or jackscrews are needed as with Toe clamp-type devices.
