FORM 20 /FORM 30 - 6

Mechanical structure Solid structure for a reliable, stable operation Rigid and compact The use of cast iron and the short C frame design ensure static and dynamic rigidity of the mechanical structure. The cross-table, fitted with linear glass scales, guarantees positioning accuracy. The ergonomics of the machine are designed to provide the most favorable ratio between the floor space area and the work surface area. Linear Tool Changer (optional) Designed to be both economical and efficient, the fully integrated Linear Tool Changer (LTC) is ideal for less complex applications requiring few...

C axis (optional) A rugged C axis delivers high positioning precision (0.001°) regard­ less of electrode weight (up to 25 kg) and full machine current. Completely integrated, the C axis is easily extended to increase X and Y travels when machining very large parts. Thanks to the CNC-controlled C axis integrated into the quill of the Z axis, the FORM 20 and FORM 30 are incredibly flexible machines, with four axes that can be interpolated simultaneously. Allows curved recesses and undercuts by rotating the C axis and 3D vector widening. Closed loop servo control Positioning measurements are...

Embedded documentation In order to avoid big workbooks, electronic documentation is embedded in the machine (HTML format). There is no need for printed information on the current screen, code programming, parameters of machining, maintenance, for example. With a simple touch, the necessary information instantly appears on the screen. Interactive graphical assistance All operations such as measurement and machining cycles are illustrated by graphics/icons for fast operator understanding and ease of use. Programming interactive chart • Rapid • Intelligent • Flexible AC FORM HMI for increased...

Flexibility and power guarantee reliable results Generator and technology The FORM 20 and FORM 30 are equipped with one of the most modern generators in the world for die-sinking EDM. Integrated into the generator is quality-boosting and cost-saving intelligence. The EDM process is continuously optimized with every impulse, drastically reducing electrode wear on even the finest finishes. Process control takes a fraction of a second and produces an extremely homogeneous surface finish. The high-power generator has maximum output of 80 A on FORM 20 and 140 A on FORM 30. The generator’s...

Easy setup for quick start of erosion Ergonomic job preparation The most common measuring cycles, from simple measuring of Z level to rotating the workpiece around the C axis, are integrated into the control. Thanks to these measuring cycles, the position of the workpiece is plotted, eliminating the need for the operator to adjust the workpiece. This means the time to erosion is minimized and the workpiece can be placed in the working area without time-consuming manual alignment. The operator can start the erosion. The new FORM 20 and FORM 30 are ideal machines for inexperienced users in...

High-Speed and High-Performance Milling Centers In terms of cutting speed, HSM centers are 10 times faster than conventional milling machines. Greater accuracy and a better surface nish are also achieved. This means that even tempered materials can be machined to a condition where they are largely ready to use. One essential advantage of HSM is that with systematic integration, the process chain can be signicantly shortened. HSM has developed alongside EDM into one of the key technologies in mold and tool making. Electric Discharge Machines EDM can be used to machine conductive materials of...
