Machine park update

The Mitsubishi FA20S Advance wire electroerosion machine was launched in the Tool Shop.

Due to the non-contact between the cutting tool and the workpiece, the electroerosion machine allows cutting thin-walled parts of very small size, such as shaped cutters, carving dies, pins, which is an obvious advantage compared to drilling, milling or turning operations.

A huge advantage for electroerosion machines is that the cutting process does not have any thermal impact on the part — hardened parts can be cut without disturbing the metal properties.
