Principle :

This industrial EDM machine (bifilar machine) enables small-volume pieces machining.


Technical characteristics :

- Vertical wire diameter : 0.02 or 0.025mm
- Rotary plate for 3D machining
- Wire automatic therading system : therading range (0.03 to 0.25mm) with wire guide

- Stroke axis :

• X and Y axes : 250mm*200mm
• Z axis : 100mm
• Accurancy : <1µm for a height of 100 mm

- Relief angle :

• Thick wire : ± 30º on 65mm
• Thin wire : ± 1.5º on 65mm

- Work table dimensions : 560*660mm
- Maximum carried piece weight : 500kg
- Diélectric : deionised water

- Roughness :

• 0.2µm Ra for steel
• 0.05µm Ra for ceramics


Achieved results :

The applications concern the fabrication of microsystems for biomedical applications and electronics and more generally, for micro-opto-electro-mechanical system (MOEMS).
