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.

  • Robotic EDM Cell Maximizes Productivity

    A Fanuc robotic EDM cell from Methods EDM increases production capacity through automated loading and unloading. The cell features a high-speed Fanuc six-axis robot and can be configured to serve either a single or multiple Fanuc iC Series wire EDM machine. The design of the Fanuc M-710iB/70 robot provides a large work envelope in a minimum of floor space.

  • 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.

  • 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.
