Makino’s Edge2 sinker EDM is built for general precision machining applications. It provides accurate and reliable performance for standard die/mold components or contract manufacturing with a space-saving design for shop floors, the company says.

The EDM features a rise-and-fall worktank designed with access to the workzone for setups, which improves visibility to monitor the machining processes. According to the company, the machines include an eight-station automatic toolchanger (ATC) to extend unattended operation, and support robotic automation for unattended operations.

The machines are equipped with safety features, such as flame sensor and fire extinguisher systems, that are integrated and monitored by the machine control.

  • EDM Enables DIY Form Tools

    This manufacturer uses its EDM unit to make and sharpen form tools for its production equipment. Strategically, learning new skills in-house may lead to future commercialization of a value-added process not previously available. It could be a model for other shops.

  • EDM Drill Solves Oil Passage Problem

    This manufacturer was having a problem machining a 0.025-inch diameter oil feed hole at an angle in a hardened steel component called the Bronson Roller. The 30-degree angle of entry and the hardened condition of the roller body made it a difficult task for conventional drilling. The part was one of a family of parts that vary in OD and oil hole angle of entry.

  • Masters of the Small Hole

    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.
