C&C EDM’s Wire EDM machine tables move on the X-Y plane and can position the upper guide independently in the U-V and Z axis, giving the machine the ability to move all five axes (X, Y, Z, U, V) simultaneously to cut tapers or shapes that transition from top to bottom.
Projection under an angle enables the machining of variable reference heights. Thus, a circumferential cylindrical collar of constant height can be created in the workpiece. The tapered section is calculated by our OPTICAM Classic Software and does not have to be included in the construction of the 3D model beforehand.
Partial pocketing is used to combine normal roughing and pocketing. It prevents the creation of slugs during roughing and thus enables an unattended and undisturbed operation.
