Start Hole Drilling – Drilling Power

The perfect complement to the wire-cutting systems from Mitsubishi Electric. The start EDM drilling systems not only master small dimensions on start holes with 0.3–3.0 mm ­electrodes, but also functional bores. The manual version offers comfortable operation during manual positioning, while the CNC version also masters a large number of holes in a single sweep.

Equipped for everything. Three sizes, one strategy.

Small holes, great precision

The perfect complement to the wire-cutting systems from Mitsubishi Electric. The start EDM drilling systems not only master small dimensions on start holes with 0.3–3.0 mm ­electrodes, but also functional bores. The manual version offers comfortable operation during manual positioning, while the CNC version also masters a large number of holes in a single sweep.

Speed and simplicity

An EDM drilling system simply has to get the job done – and must not distract from important tasks. The start series is therefore designed to bring the user quickly and simply to his goal. Speed and simplicity are also all-important as far as maintenance and organisation are concerned – everything is readily accessible and accommodated immediately in the machine. Even electrode tubes and guides can be stored within the machine. Everything within easy reach.

Speed and simplicity

A monument to precision. Solid granite and plenty of power.

Intelligent generator technology

The generator is designed for low-wear operation without compromising on performance. Micro Discharge Technology makes it possible. Drilling technology for a variety of tasks is available in the technology database. For exotic materials, technologies can be modified and stored at any time – in-built flexibility.

Diversified machining strategies inclusive

Automatic positioning measurement is a convenient function of the CNC-controlled version. Further important automatic functions of the machines:

  • Electrode wear compensation
  • Z axis retraction function
  • Depth calculation for blind holes

Ergonomic fixed table

Good accessibility permits convenient and swift set-up. The tidy, granite-based work area is designed and optimised for easy workpiece clamping. Furthermore, the fixed table makes the machine compact and permits loading with heavier workpieces.

Solid base, high-grade guides and spindles – in the service of precision

The machine base is solidly designed. The granite stiffening components and high-grade linear guides are an assurance of durability and long-term accu­racy. The granite base of the work table also prevents accidental drilling into the table.

Whether manual or CNC control, convenience is what counts – in both cases.

Position manually, ...

…conveniently assign the technology via the touch panel and select the machining details. And then you can start.

Position automatically...

…by CNC command. The drilling position can be manually entered on the screen or conveniently adopted from external sources. You can either read in a positioning table or adopt the drilling position from an already loaded DXF file – the choice is yours. Incidentally, the interfaces for data transfer are already available: USB or TCP/IP, serving all commonly used standards.

Direct selection from DXF

A convenient way to select the position: the DXF of a component being machined is read in and the drilling points are adopted directly from the graphics. It could hardly be simpler!

It’s easy. Simple solutions for everyday tasks.

Simple set-up

The work table is ergonomically organised and optimised for simple workpiece clamping. The automatic position detection by means of simple set-up cycles in the CNC control identifies workpiece position and orientation and calculates the correct drilling positions. This way, workpieces are processed quickly and comfortably.

Maintenance made easy

The entire dielectric preparation and supply is accommodated in the machine base. This saves space and eliminates tripping hazards. All components are readily accessible at arm’s length, which makes maintenance easy. Long-lasting filters and the use of standard deionising resin keep operating costs low in addition. Simply an intelligent solution.

Everything within reach

Another intelligent solution: the integrated storage pocket for accessories like electrode tubes, the user’s manual and any other documents. Everything in its place and directly available – integrated in the machine, within easy reach.
