FA40V Advance Wire EDM

This high-speed and large-capacity submerged wire EDM is especially suited to the die mold industry.

The FA40V Advance is one of the world’s fastest, large-workpiece, high-accuracy wire EDM machines. The FA40V Advance features the M700 series control with a 15-inch touchscreen, providing easy user interface. The new features available with the FA40V Advance exemplify Mitsubishi’s continued dedication to high-precision, innovative machining and are sure to advance your shop’s production.


  • The FA40V brings high-precision accuracy to large-workpiece machining, giving you the best chance to deliver quality at scale.



  • Designed to handle your most important jobs, the FA40V can work with a wide variety of materials and thicknesses—quickly—to keep your line running.



  • An intuitive user interface makes the FA40V easy to program and easy to count on when time and resources are a factor.
