New CUT 2000 OilTech in use!
To fulfill the increasing standards of quality even better and to deliver even more efficient solutions in the precision machining sector, a second oil bath wire cut machine, the Agie Camilles´ CUT 2000 OilTech is our new addition to complete our modern machine park.
Unlike the conventional wire cutting process in water, machining carbide in oil eliminates problems with corrosion. The omission of micro cracks, white layers and erosion of the carbide are advantages of the oil bath. Thanks to the oil-dielectric the CUT 2000 OilTech delivers an excellent finish quality (Ra 0.05 µm) without discoloration, caused by oxidation and flawless edges. Therefore the effort for polishing and lapping can be decreased. Furthermore we hope for an increase of the tool life with this process.
By using different wire diameters (0.07 or rather 0.1mm – 0.25mm) we create shapes with corner radii up to 0.06 mm. Hereby the process distance in oil between the wire and the workpiece is smaller than the distance maintained in water. That means that the minimum slot-width is smaller in oil than in water, which allows smaller vibrations of the wire for delicate details with a maximum of precision.
The connection to our EROWA Robot Compact 80 changer allows, through automated runs, a process safe workflow during the night as well as weekends. Both our CUT 2000 OilTechs will offer more leeway in the future to bring high-precision parts to you.
