EDM wire protection system

Spark Track technology for wire-cutting electrical discharge machining (EDM) uses the Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS) module to prevent wire breakage when cutting irregularly shaped features.

Spark Track technology constantly monitors spark distribution along the EDM wire. Based on the spark data gathered, the ISPS analyzes and automatically recognizes shape changes and adapts machining parameters to prevent wire breakage during roughing. Irregular shapes such as cavities, varying heights, taper surfaces, and sharp corners no longer require operator intervention to set up machining conditions in advance.

Cassette levelers

Precision cassette levelers for advanced- and ultra-high-strength steels, tailor welded blanks, and surface-critical steel and aluminum provide superior flatness for various material widths, thicknesses, and yield strengths.

Leveler gearboxes are powered by AC servo-driven motors for precision and accuracy. Cassette-style exit pinch rolls use an independent AC servo motor. Each gearbox accommodates specified leveler capacity ratings and maximum line speeds. Hydraulic screw jacks control entry and exit bridge adjustments.

Removable cartridges house upper and lower work rolls, intermediate spiral grooved backup rolls, and 9 or 11 banks of cam follower backups. Center backups are adjustable on the XLC-HSS and HD-HSS for optimal flattening across the material’s width (optional for the HSS). Hydraulic clamping is standard.
