Ocean Technologies River Series – Precision Small Hole Drilling EDMs
The River Series EDM Drilling machines from Ocean Technologies offer heavy duty cast construction and high quality components for a true “Tool Room” grade machine. Boasting maximum workpiece weights of up to 550 pounds, these machines can handle jobs usually associated with much larger machines without losing accuracy or smoothness of operation.
Drilling is performed using rotating brass or copper tubular electrodes from 0.004” to 0.118” in diameter. A reliable high pressure pump employs adjustable through spindle flushing from 100~2000 P.S.I. allowing for the best possible performance with any size electrode.
A high speed Z Axis servo motor, 190 RPM precision spindle, and electrode vibration dampening device ensure stable accurate drilling. Newly developed machining circuits and integrated “Smooth Start” designed especially for small hole drilling reduce wear and electrode tip deformation or “bullit nosing.” Blind hole drilling and breakout times are dramatically reduced because the electrode end stays square and flat.
The River CNC Series comes standard with the SYNTEC 21MA-E control unit. The CNC control offers a full compliment of ICON driven simple-to-use functions. Everything from Auto Edge and Center find, Two Point centering, Work Axis Rotation to DXF and WEDM program importation can be performed quickly and accurately. Conversational and G/M code programming are also available making the CNC the most flexible, productive EDM Drill control on the market.
