High-accuracy, fine-finishing small-wire EDM machine.

Mitsubishi FA-PS wire EDM, replacing the older FA-P series machine, is operator-friendly and automation-ready. Ensuring improved corner accuracy, including accuracy on sharp outer corners during skimming, is the machine's CM-S2. PM4, the high-speed Power Master control that allows full automation from rough to finish machining. The stepped-shape capabilities of the PM4 allow multiple parts with different shapes and thickness to be machined without setting specific electrical conditions.

Standard features of the machine include four-axis linear scales and automatic threading of a wire size range from 0.002" to 0.012" in diameter with start holes from 0.007" diameter. Digital FS, which allows workpieces to be setup directly on the table, provides ultra-fine finishing circuit for target surface roughness of 3.0[mu]" Ra.

AFC2 suppresses disturbances during high-accuracy movement, insuring highly precise positioning and [+ or -] 3[micro]m machining accuracy. It provides roundness and pitch accuracy for friction control, with a circularity error of 0.000 05". MC Machinery Systems Inc., Mitsubishi EDM/Laser,
