Wire EDM: Level 2 - Optimization and Application Strategies

Applications Course - 2 Days

The Optimization and Application Strategies Course deals with the methods and strategies to optimize performance of your current series 64-bit PC based Mitsubishi Wire EDM machine. It is designed to provide the experienced user with the necessary knowledge foundation to better utilize the equipment's built-in features and abilities.

This will be followed by a lecture on advanced machining concepts and common program difficulties. Several optimization strategies will be demonstrated which are applications specific. Technology manipulation will be highlighted. A better understanding of the various circuits and machine functions will be provided.

More time and detail will be spent on material preparation, how to compensate when parts move during the cut, and how to adjust and stabilize a burn. Also discussed is when to use each of the 3 modes of Power Master during roughing operations, as well as techniques to correct straightness during skimming. Other topics include: Taper machining, Angle changes along with setting and hardware adjustments necessary for different degrees of taper, Program resume strategies and coreless cutting.

Course instructors welcome real world topics from the students and will clarify any related troubleshooting techniques and strategies.
