Wire EDMs for automation

The CUT P series of wire EDMs – 350/550/800/1250 – offer efficient power generators, intuitive human- machine interfaces (HMIs), and several automation options for lights-out operation. Featuring Intelligent Power Generator (IPG) technology, the machines offer surface finishes to Ra 0.08µm and boost cutting speeds by up to 20%.

Fixed tables provide rigidity and stability to ensure accuracy when machining heavy workpieces, and integrated regulation systems maintain temperatures within ±0.2°C for repeatability. In shops where the ambient temperature may vary throughout the day, a thermostability option provides temperature control protection.

Collision protection technology in the X-, Y-, U-, V-, and Z-axis, prevent potential machine damage and eliminate downtime and maintenance – even at maximum axis travel speeds of 3m/min.

The Windows 7-based AC CUT HMI 2 user interface simplifies file management and maximizes operator efficiency, supporting intuitive programming directly on the control.

Laser beam profiling camera

The Ophir Pyrocam IV USB laser beam profiling camera features a 320 x 320 pixel pyroelectric array that can profile beams up to 1" (25mm) without reduction optics. Measuring pulsed- and continuous-wave (CW) lasers, from 13nm to 355nm and 1.06µm to >3,000µm, the Pyrocam IV device includes an integral focal plane chopper for CW beams and thermal imaging. The plug-and-play USB3.0 interface can be connected to a PC for further analysis of the beam.

Extrusion tooling

Series 800 2-to-6-layer extrusion tooling produces high quality, material- efficient 1/8" to 6" OD tubing. The redesigned series produces smooth extrusion and layer definition of fluropolymer andother materials for all multi-layer, multi-lumen medical tubing. The design further allows thin layer combinations of polymers and adhesives to 0.02mm or less.
