AgieCharmilles FORM X400

EDM Die-Sinking Machine – Extreme Accuracy & Quality

AgieCharmilles FORM X series

Design for extreme accuracy and uncompromising quality

 

GF Machining Solutions’ new AgieCharmilles FORM X series guarantees very high precision in die-sinking electrical discharge machining (EDM) by mastering temperature fluctuations. The result is superbly precise machining of complex applications where there is no room for error.

 

Main Specs:

  • Travels (X,Y,Z):  15.748″ x 11.811″ x 13.78″
  • Workpiece Dimensions (W, D, H):  32.283″ x 22.835″ x 9.843″

 

Features

Master temperature fluctuations

The sophisticated and unique thermo control system compensates for temperature variations by using temperature-stable dielectric to cool the X, Y and Z glass scales, as well as the Z axis ball screw. In assembly, the sinker EDM machine body is thermally isolated from the high-speed Z axis, which is cooled with dielectric fluid.

 

Extreme positioning accuracy

The AgieCharmilles FORM X die-sinking EDM series’ structure has been specially designed with a frame of polymeric material that ensures constant positioning accuracy: The machine’s extreme robustness means that all the mechanical forces are absorbed so that an accurate gap between the part and the electrode is maintained.

 

 

 

  • Part Weight
    Experience superior mechanical stability and precision across the life of the die-sinking EDM machine, thanks to its short C axis construction and oversize cast iron frame. As a result, your accuracy is uncompromised by part weight or dielectric volume and your precision is further advanced.
  • Position resolution
    To obtain reliable positioning accuracy, only linear glass scales are effective. They eliminate all the classic errors, such as backlash, expansion and wear effects. The axis servo control system developed by GF Machining Solutions for die-sinking EDM machines is a closed loop measurement solution designed to provide infallible accuracy, whatever the travel.
  • Surface finish
    The AgieCharmilles FORM X series meets—in an exemplary way—the market demand for easy-to-control, automated production. Each level of Automation is easily accommodated due to this sinker machine’s modular, space-saving design, adding a tool changer up to 140 electrodes or System 3R’s WPT1+ external robot.

  • High accuracy on big and small parts
    Achieve highest accuracy, reproducibility and quality on both big and small parts—with a single die-sinking EDM machine—thanks to a fixed table and stiff machine base. Your accuracy and reproducibility on big and small parts are ensured by the fixed table and stiff machine base delivering positioning accuracy along the whole axis travel.
  • Shorten machining time and increase your cost savings
    This die-sinking EDM solution’s optimal combination of sparking and flushing of the cavity produces high removal rates and boosts cutting speeds while preserving electrode details. Get fast cavities and surface machining thanks to the high removal rates ensured by optimal sparking and flushing of the cavity, and save on costs due to iGAP technology for adaptive sparking control to boost cutting speed and preserve electrode details and lifespan.
  • 3DS mold surface texturing
    With 3DS, your surfaces are qualified in both crater height and width and the craters left by die-sinking EDM are perfectly controlled. You achieve a structure so smooth and uniform that it cannot be seen by the human eye. This technology dramatically reduces plastic adherence towards mold inserts, maximizes plastic part demolding efficiency and reduces plastic injection cycle time.
  • Accurca-C, the best high-performance axis on the market
    A rugged C axis delivers high positioning precision regardless of electrode weight (up to 25 kg) and full machine current. Completely integrated, the C axis is easily extended to increase X and Y travels when machining very large parts. Integrated into the quil of the Z axis, the AgieCharmilles S series’ C axis is incredibly flexible, producing perfect curved recesses and undercuts.
