Sinker EDM


Sinker EDM

The EDGE3 machine provides open and unrestricted access for the operator to the work zone with a 4-sided programmable rise and fall work tank, and achieves reliable and repeatable precision through a stationary work table design. 
The foot print of the EDGE3 is dramatically reduced by integrating the di-electric reservoir into the base casting of the machine, eliminating the need for external holding tanks, and this design enhances thermal stability coupled with the standard di-electric chiller unit.  Floor space requirements are further reduced by the integral design of the ATC (Automatic Tool Change) system, which is located beneath the X/Y machine structure, providing greater process efficiency and unattended operation.
The Windows-based MGH-6 control system provides user-friendly machine operation, and utilizes a 15” touch screen display.  The needs of the operator are a main focus of the MPG (Makino Program Generator) control function, which simplifies machine programming using a conversational interface with a friendly top-down flow.  The EDGE3 is configured for safe and reliable operation, and is equipped with a Flame Sensor, Fire Suppression system, and an advanced Handbox with an LED display and Emergency Stop button.

Technical Specifications

The EDGE3 does not share all the same capabilities as the more advanced EDAF3, but it is still loaded with a productive mix of technologies to support a wide variety of applications.  The EDGE-Series machines make use of Makino’s latest IES (Intelligent Expert System) and SuperSpark4 technologies that consist of advanced adaptive power and jump controls.  These adaptive technologies improve accuracy and cycle time by automatically stabilizing the EDM discharge process, and improved metallurgical quality and consistent surface finishes are produced with the help of the advanced SuperSurface and SuperEdge technologies.  The array of features and capabilities that are afforded by the EDGE3 machine bring exceptional value and productivity to the Sink EDM process.
