Writer Kip Hanson features MC Machinery’s intelligent automatic threader (AT) EDM machines in his current article in Cutting Tool Engineering “Better Threaders”. As a “never-miss device,” Hanson elaborates on the improvement of the wire EDM process with the help of MC Machinery’s automatic threaders; “Mitsubishi’s AT intelligent automatic threader reduces wire curl and rethreads through the gap if the wire breaks.”
Our very own Mike Bystrek, national EDM product manager, is quoted by Hanson stating, “because of the annealing process, we don’t have to go back to the start hole when the wire breaks. We can thread it through the workpiece from the point where the wire broke by using the kerf to guide the wire.”
