The latest Mitsubishi MV2400-SZ+ wire cut EDM machine is capable of submerged cutting up to 425mm deep and offers the ‘best auto threading system available' according to UK distributor, HK Technologies.
Incorporating the latest advancements in machine construction and power supply technology, the MV2400-SZ+ is designed to increase shopfloor productivity. It offers an impressive annealing length of over 350mm that makes the system capable of threading the maximum workpiece height and also providing a realistic opportunity for the customer to thread through the gap. This is an innovative new feature for end users that may need to recover broken wire.
The MV2400-SZ+ also features a new, non-contact cylindrical drive system and the M700 series Windows-based control with 15 inch touchscreen.
From an operational cost perspective, the machine introduces Mitsubishi's new V350-V AEII Power Supply DMX-S (Digital Matrix Sensor) that shapes each spark to reduce electrode wear considerably. This feature reduces consumable costs for the customer whilst reducing the power consumption and subsequent running costs of the machine.
From a productivity standpoint, the MV2400-SZ+ introduces a new innovation, the Linear Shaft Drive System XY (U,V and Z use ballscrews), which delivers smooth, controllable movements and high levels of precision. The new technology also requires less electricity, coupled to the fact that the machine has an all fibre optic servo control that permits internal communication that is said to be four times faster than conventional systems.
This new technology is built upon a fine grain 'Dianite' casting material that guarantees the one piece hardened four-sided stainless worktable is mounted on a high quality, robust and precise machine base.
This provides the end user with the capability to process components up to 1,050mm x 820mm x 420mm (WxDxH) on the 840mm by 640mm table. This particularly large work envelope is complemented by a maximum component submersion up to 1,500kg. Despite the large work area, the overall machine footprint is just 2,837mm by 3,490mm, making the MV2400-SZ+ suitable for the most compact of machine shops.
With ease of use and high productivity at the core of the machine, the MV2400-SZ+ features rapid table speeds and automated fluid level control. Furthermore, it has a vertical machine tank door for improved set-up and operation.
