Next-Generation EDM Added to Product Line



Methods Machine Tools, Inc. recently added the FANUC RoboCut a-CiC series to its line of wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) products.

"The a-CiC series continues to push the boundaries of speed, precision and reliability," said Steve Raucci, Methods' Technical Sales Director and RoboCut Product Manager. "The redesigned a-CiC series creates a faster, more exact EDM experience."

"The next generation of the RoboCut features innovative technology, making it the most productive wire EDM machine on the market," said a company spokesperson. "Constructed for high rigidity, the advanced EDM machines minimize the amount of distortion embedded into each part. New discharge devices, powered by the SF3 power supply, improve surface roughening capabilities while maintaining high cutting speeds."

Additional features include a taper adjustment function for high-precision taper cutting, thermal displacement compensation for increased stability, and faster cycle times due to the automatic wire feeding system, AWF3, and core stitch technology.

Currently available in two sizes, the RoboCut a-C400iC has travel lengths of 15.748" (400 mm) on the X-axis, 11.811" (300 mm) on the Y-axis and 10.039" (255 mm) on the Z-axis.

Travels on the a-C600iC are 23.622" (600 mm), 15.748" (400 mm) and 12.204" (310 mm) on the X-, Y- and Z-axis.

The new models replace their respective counterparts in the a-CiB series. The C800iB, which belongs to the previous generation of RoboCut, the a-CiB, is still a part of Methods' product offering.
