“To make the most of advanced manufacturing technology, even a single machine’s productivity can be enhanced with the appropriate automation. In this model cell, the AgieCharmilles CUT P 550 Pro wire EDM solution is made even more productive with the addition of a System 3R WorkPartner 1+ (WPT1+), an automation solution that offers maximum magazine capacity in minimal floor space for unprecedented flexibility, making it easy for manufacturers to start with a single magazine and add one or two as required,” said the spokesperson.
“This is ideal for the high-speed productivity of the CUT P 550 Pro, which provides 20% faster cutting speeds with 25% less wire consumption due to its Intelligent Power Generator (IPG) technology,” continued the spokesperson.
“To maximise its productivity during unattended machining and leverage the flexible capacity of the WPT1+-the wire EDM solution also features new Spark Track technology with Intelligent Spark Protection System (ISPS) to provide secure processes.”
For even greater part processing speeds, the CUT P 550 Pro will be compatible with the company’s new Uniqua control. This innovative human-machine interface builds on the dynamic programming potential of the company’s VISION Controls with EIA/ISO code compatibility and offers a range of features designed to improve wire cutting speeds 14% to 28% per cent on CUT P series machines.
