  • Advanced Forming Research Centre

Description

Purpose A most versatile machine, capable of cutting 45° cones, and can do this whatever the height of the part. The principle of crossed double guiding of the X, Y, U and V axes independently and of the same dimensions, allows machining to be done with a large taper, thus widening the scope of possible applications for wire spark erosion. Interesting fact: The history of EDM Machining techniques goes as far back as the 1770s when it was discovered by an English Scientist Joseph Priestley... for more information, see website below
