20.45 m2

Footprint

Starting with a space-saving footprint that takes your valuable floor space into consideration, the AgieCharmilles FORM E 350 sets market standards for compact die-sinking EDM machines.

50 nm

Position resolution

The use of a cast iron and the short C frame design ensures static and dynamic rigidity of the mechanical structure. Positioning accuracy is guaranteed by linear glass scales on the cross table. The die sinker’s ergonomics are engineered to provide the most favorable ratio between floor spare and work surface.

24/7

Unattended machining

The new AgieCharmilles FORM E sinker EDM series allows you to considerably increase your production by reducing human intervention. Thanks to the Linear Tool Changer (LTC) and an external robot from System 3R, you can easily take your production to the next level of die-sinking efficiency.

Ra 0.1 μm

Surface finish

Several options are available to extend the already impressive AgieCharmilles FORM E series capabilities. These include the GammaTEC technology to optimize die sinking machining for shiny surface finishes on parts.

FORM P series
 
Boost your running-time with efficiency

The AgieCharmilles FORM P sinker EDM solution takes the management of deep ribs to new levels of respect for details of form and surface finishing while advancing manufacturers’ cost efficiency and machining speed.

3,000 kg

Part weight

The construction as a short C frame and the oversized casting guarantee mechanical stability and precision throughout the life of the sinker EDM machine. In addition, the robustness of the die-sinking EDM machine absorbs all the machining forces to maintain a precise gap between the part and the electrode.

50 nm

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.

24/7

Productivity

Automation keeps production going whatever the time. Your results are shorter lead times, higher productivity and quicker payback of capital invested in your die-sinking EDM machines. With System 3R Automation solutions, production can continue running round the clock, seven days a week. The possibilities are endless with our die-sinking EDM solutions.

100%

Machining stability

Available on the AgieCharmilles FORM P 600 as a variant, the thermostabilization provides perfect and accurate machining over time and whatever the temperature conditions during die-sinking EDM machining.
