Straighter, More Accurate Parts without Increased Wire Consumption
Inaccuracies (the “belly” or “bow”) are usually worse in the center of a vertical span of a workpiece. These errors occur 90 percent of the time during the initial rough cut. BellyWIZARD cuts closer to the net shape in the rough cut, reducing or eliminating the need for additional skim-pass machining. This results in a straighter part—as much as 40 percent straighter over conventional wire EDM technology.
BellyWIZARD’s adaptive technology automatically selects the optimum machining parameters for the height of each workpiece. It also automatically compensates for changes in the wire caused by eroded wear and wire lag. The result is a straighter and more accurate part without increasing wire consumption, all in reduced cycle times.
