Mikron Milling

 

In modern machining technology, there is an ever-increasing trend towards high levels of availability and greater flexibility. The demand is for even better machining quality, shorter turnaround times and improved, more cost-effective solutions. The future oriented strategy for the standard machines produced by GFMS is based on this development. From the complete range of machines, toolmakers, mold makers and component manufactures can select individual solution in order to gain a competitive edge.

 

High Performance Machining Centers

 

In contrast to High Speed Cutting, this technology mainly is used for the machining of two dimensional geometries. The cutting depth ap and the stepover ap along with the machining feed allow calculation of the material removal per unit of time (cm3/min). This process in particular is suitable when it comes to the removal of large volumes of material or the machining of difficult to cut materials. High power, high torque spindles are a must. Primarily used cutting tools are insert type milling heads, specific high performance end mills, drills, boring heads and special tooling.

AgieCharmilles EDM

 

EDM can be used to machine conductive materials of any hardness (for example steel or titanium) to an accuracy of up to one-thousandth of a millimeter with no mechanical action. By virtue of these properties, EDM is one of the key technologies in mold and tool making. There are two distinct processes — wire cut and die-sinking EDM machines. GF Machining Solutions’ solutions include hole drilling EDM.

 

Die-sinking EDM

 

GF Machining Solutions is revolutionizing die-sinking EDM with features like FTC — the world’s fastest tool changer — and IQ technology to dramatically reduce electrode wear. All of our die-sinking systems offer fast removal and deliver mirror finishes of Ra 0.2 µm (8 µin)with pulse duration as short as 50 nanoseconds.

 

Micro Machining

 

To satisfy demanding applications in connectors, as well as in the areas of medicine and watch industry, where components now need to be miniaturized.

Wire Cutting EDM

 

Wire EDM machine uses a metallic wire (electrode) to cut a programmed contour in a workpiece. Extrusion dies and blanking punches are very often machined by wire cutting. In the machining area, each discharge creates a crater in the workpiece (material removal) and an impact on the tool (wear of the tool/electrode). The wire can be inclined, thus making it possible to make parts with taper or with different profiles at the top and bottom. The wire is usually made of brass or stratified copper, and is between 0.02 and 0.33 mm diameter.

 

Micro Machining

 

Open up new opportunities for ultra-precise machining of miniaturized components in various fields of technology, including aerospace, defense, medical instruments, semiconductor that may require wire diameters down to 0.02 mm.

Hole Drilling EDM

 

Hole drilling EDM uses low cost electrode tube (normally brass or copper material) to drill holes on a electrically conductive material at a very high speed, the hole depth diameter ratio can reach up to 200. The hole diameter is normally from 0.3mm to 3.0mm, with five axis configuration the machine can drill hole at any angles on a inclined surface workpiece. This technology is widely used for hole machinig in aerospace, energy, cutting tools, automotive, medical, mold and die industries.

 

General Purpose

 

In aircraft engine, cooling holes are widely used for creating a film of cooling air on the surface of turbine blades and vanes to prevent them from melting, hole drilling EDM with five axes is a robust and consistent solution in terms of recast layer and productivity.

System 3R

 

Tooling

 

Experience always shows that measures to reduce the idle times of your machines are significantly more worthwhile than chasing seconds in the actual machining process. The solution is a stable and exact reference system. This lets you preset away from the machine and then set up the machine with minimum idle time. Quickly and precisely!

 

Electrode Manufacturing & Die-Sinking EDM

 

The engineering industry is complex. Every company is unique in terms of type of production, machinery, capacity etc. To satisfy all these different requirements, System 3R has developed reference systems of exceptional flexibility.

 

Wire Cutting EDM

 

WEDM positions the workpiece within the working area of the machine and on the machine’s zero line. Whether the workpiece is rectangular or round, small or large, thin or thick, tall or short, it is clamped with minimal risk of collision. There are infinitely many possible combinations in the product range, the only limitation being the user’s imagination.

Without doubt, System 3R offers the most comprehensive product range on the market. What’s more, it also leads in terms of number of installations – world wide.

  • Exceptional flexibility
  • Accurately ground-in references
  • Repeatable accuracy
  • Double-sided parallel references
  • Fits all machine tables with 25 or 50 mm pitch.

 

Parts Production

 

Every minute that can be converted from internal to external setting time increases the spindle time of the machine and with it the productivity of the business.

Big earnings are within your reach
The machine generates revenue when its spindle is turning – and only then.

Work smarter, not harder.

 

Powder Compacting Technology

 

Reduces the set-up times in the press and gives an improved
accuracy & quality and less repairs.

Fitting the machines with the same reference system means that electrodes and workpieces can be moved between the machines without subsequent alignment and checking.

 

Automation

 

Automation keeps production going whatever the time of day or day of the week. The result is shorter lead times, higher productivity and quicker payback of capital invested in machines.

 

WorkPal
