GF Machining Solutions Dedicates EDM to Aerospace Machining

GF Machining Solutions' CUT 200 Dedicated wire electrical discharge machine (EDM) is designed for complex aerospace work. The machine delivers some of the industry’s highest levels of speed, performance, quality and productivity – giving manufacturers more control of production costs.

During the show demonstration, GF Machining Solutions’ new eTracking software will monitor the fir tree cuts and show results in real-time. For manufacturers, the software’s capabilities guarantee traceability for finished parts. The software completes necessary pre-machining checklists, monitors machine data and compares it to reference values. It also monitors consumable parts and control items, monitors machine status and traces data during machining – and transmits all this data to a user-friendly, real-time dashboard. The eTracking function also alerts and confirms preventive maintenance to increase machine up time and efficiency and prevent any unexpected issues.

The CUT 200 Dedicated features a built-in A/B tilt/rotary table to easily cut complex aerospace alloy components such as turbine disks using B-axis rotation and +/- 20-degree A-axis tilt. It also incorporates on-machine, in-process inspection that encompasses a measuring probe and supporting software.

To significantly reduce non-cut times, the CUT 200 Dedicated boasts extremely fast axis speeds and quick wire threading. The latest generation of GF Machining Solutions’ spark generators allows the machine to cut up to speeds of 38"2/hour (400 mm2/min) and up to 30-degree tapers in the Z-axis height, while also producing superior part surface finishes and eliminating recast layers and micro-cracks. Additionally, energy saving functionality and advanced software help reduce operational costs and provide increased system connectivity.

In addition to the aerospace industry, the CUT 200 Dedicated is well suited for controlling production costs in the mold and die, medical and contract machining industries.
