Wire EDM: Level 1 - Machine Fundamentals

Operations Course - 3 Days

The Machine Fundamentals Course will introduce and instruct the student in the functions, setups and operational principles of the current series 64-bit PC based Mitsubishi Wire EDM machine. It is primarily designed to provide the first time user with a good knowledge foundation of the features and specific controls necessary to run the average Wire EDM job and is introductory in nature.

The Wire EDM Machine Fundamentals Course begins with an introduction to the various features of the machine tool and controller.

A demonstration and class lab follow this on workpiece preparation fundamentals that will allow each student to actually use the setup feature(s) of the machine to qualify and setup a job. Each student will be shown proper edge, center and corner pickups, wire alignments, origin procedures and other part setup procedures.

Students will then be given time on the machines to load in and cut programs where they will get exposure to the Machining Monitor screen and cutting parameters such as the technology settings, feedrates and offsets, axis rotation, program mirror functions, how to use dry run, graphics manipulation, interference checks, AWF skip, Auto Return, Corner Master, Power Master, E-Adjust and Axis exchange to name a few.

Taper cutting with and without land will be shown, in addition to 4-axis taper as well as Common MDI G & M codes will be explained.

The students will then be shown methods for installing the carbides, diamond guides and flushing cups of the upper and lower head assemblies and other general maintenance required on the machine.
