)-- Wexco announced upgrades to their AGIECUT 350 HSS wire EDM equipment. President Peter Jones stated, “Wexco’s wire machine is one of a few comparable in size that are located in North America. It gives Wexco a somewhat unique and versatile cutting ability on large complex parts. We decided it was time to better utilize the EDM resource by investing in upgrades to improve speed and efficiency. In the past it has primarily been used in the production of our figure eight twin bore segment liners and barrels for extrusion machinery. The machine can do much more. The investment is intended to expand machining services to our existing customers and offer wire EDM services to new industries on a local and national scale.”
Improvements have been made to controls; wire threading and associated components to reduce set up cost and maximize throughput capacity.
The AGIECUT 350 HSS wire (EDM) offers precision computer controlled machining ability for medium to large size production parts, tooling components and finish work. It delivers high accuracy in machining difficult and complex geometries that require tight tolerances. The working capacity for the Wexco wire EDM machine is a width of 1100 mm (43.31 inches), depth 1300 mm (51.18 inches) and height of 600 mm / 23.62 inches.
