AccuteX AP Series – Ultra Performance Wire EDM
AP series casting applies a compound table design by X axis moving table and Y axis moving column. The center of gravity is always located between 2 linear guideways of the X axis table. X and Y axes are independent, without accumulation stack error for less deformation by FEA (Finite Element Analysis). Improved maximum loading weight is up to 1,100kgs. Bi-directional repeatability is less than 2.5um after 5 times laser inspection.
The heavy duty machine body was designed by Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to assure optimized mechanical structure. Features include: Meehanite cast honeycomb-type base, highly-ribbed column mounted with oversized UVZ axis, and reinforced lower-arm to increase stiffness. All castings are stabilized and subjected to rigid testing to insure maximum strength, permanent high precision, and long durability.
The AccuteX Linear Shaft motor is standard equipment on the AP-6040A+ Wire EDM. Accutex developed and manufactures this cutting edge technology fully in house. The simplified maintenance free design enables AccuteX to offer world class precision and performance at an affordable price. The High speed linear shaft motor provides 10% faster servo response time compared to a conventional ball screw with no backlash or lost motion. The linear shaft motor, HIWIN linear guideways, 0.000004” Fagor glass scales, and 64 bit processing are joined together on the massive 8,140 pound casting putting the AL-600SA in a class of its own.
The U-V axis mechanism has been placed in the cabinet above the working area. This design assures reliable durable operation in any shop environment. The rigid structure and 20mm C1 Class U-V ball screws provide high precision at the maximum flushing pressures necessary for high speed cutting.
The precision work piece-mounting table is made of hardened stainless steel, has easy accessibility, and is designed as a standard clamping system. This permits the setting of a wide range of work pieces quickly and accurately. The worktable can also accommodate any commercial clamping system.
The machine is equipped with an annealing, fully automatic wire threading system (AWT) with a scrap wire disposal unit. AccuteX’s unique intelligent servo-control wire-threading technology (patent pending), together with multi-detectors, makes it the world’s fastest and most reliable (threading at wire break point) automatic wire threading system on the market.
The Windows CE based CNC system’s powerful 64 bit CPU is a high speed, stable, industrial-grade computer, featuring a powerful user friendly software interface and 17” color touch screen. This controls’ conversational cutting condition selection, on board operation manuals and help menus, along with a long list of productivity functions and features, makes new users effective and experienced operators capable of performing any application easily and accurately.
