EDMMax 434W Fast Wire EDM
EDMMax - Affordable Fast wire solution for most wire EDM applications. These full 4 axis wire EDMs use .007'' diameter molybdenum high tensile wire. That is "reusable". It is cycled back and forth from a capstan continuously, until it is replaced with a new load of wire, ≈ 200 meters. This low cost moly wire lasts approximately 48 ours of continuous cutting, depending on the application, and the total cost of the operation is about $1.00/hour.
The fast wire EDM comes complete with an on-board CAD System, plus you can download programs via USB. It has taper capability +1-3° and dialectic filtration system using disposable paper filters.
Unlike conventional brass wire EDMs, the Fast Wire EDMs are not "flush dependent." They do not require high pressure flush or submerged cutting to reduce wire breakage. Instead, we use an additive to the deionized water that allows the water to adhere to the moly wire, thus allowing it to be drawn through the narrow kerf, to remove the EDM swarf, without breaking the wire! This feature makes it ideal for removing the 3D LPBF (Laser Powder Bed Fusion) printed parts from the build plates. These Fast Wire EDMs will typically cut 2-3 times faster than brass wire EDMs in interrupted conditions.
