Absolute Machine Tools Inc.’s Yougar YGS CNC moving head has an automatic guide changer (AGC) that enables automatic drilling of holes of different depths and long unattended operations. According to the company, the machine offers up to eight fully programmable axes, facilitating processing of complex manufacturing applications. Rotating brass or copper tubular electrodes from 0.1 mm-3.0 mm (0.004”-0.118”) diameter perform drilling, while a high pressure pump provides adjustable through-spindle flushing from 0-750 psi to maximize performance with any electrode size.

A 17” touchscreen PC display enables operators to manually enter drilling positions or import them from a DXF file or wire EDM program file stored on an external source. USB or TCP/IP data transfer interfaces are standard. The built-in supply module for the dielectric system saves space and simplifies maintenance.

Dielectric fluid is filtered from 3 microns to 20 microns via a standard replaceable paper filter cartridge while an ION quality sensor and mixed bed ION exchange resin monitors clean water to maintain proper conductivity. Maximum workpiece weight is up to 1,100 pounds and the machines support diverse rotary table manufacturers, tilting head (±45°), and multi-lingual operations, the company says.

    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.
