Power for Accuracy

The MP Series is made for very tight tolerances. It is one of the best Wire-EDM machines based on water. By using a complete body out of a strengthened meehanite-cast, we gain an improved stability. Highest grade linear guides from THK are responsible for less rolling resistance. Furthermore the machine head is included in the cooling system, which enables a better control of the temperature. As a result it is possible to reach even better accuracies compared to the MV series.

With a general pitch accuracy of +/- 1 µm, a typical roughness down to Ra 0.05 µm, even an angle precision of +/- 0,01° (36 sec.) and a perfect roundness the MP‘s can be used for the following production areas:

  • High Precision Mold & Die
  • Tools for Micro-Electronics
  • High Accuracy Medical Parts
  • Finest blanking
  • EDM Dress

Mechanical Engineering

Configured for precision

The MP2400 comes with a fixed table for precision even in the event of high loads. The MP1200 has a split-axis design, with the table movable on the X axis, and the column on the Y axis – proven for max­imum precision with medium loads.

Perfect drive

What was it about conventional drive systems that bothered developers at Mitsubishi Electric? The need for lubrication, the friction and frictional heat, power consumption, backlash, the cogging moment and above all the possible wear. Only a non-­contact drive overcomes these drawbacks from the outset and is thus an assurance of better results and enhanced dependability over decades.

Durable hardened stainless steel table

The four-sided table is insensitive to dielectric and sludge for decades. High-grade stainless steel ­components and the stainless steel work tank ensure dependability and maintenance-freedom.

The Tubular Shaft Motor

The Tubular Shaft Motor converts energy directly into motion, without contact, without maintenance and above all without loss of precision – long-term. Combined with the 400 % faster fibre-optic-­based control, this superior technology can truly show what it is capable of.

The 12-year genuine manufacturer warranty on positioning accuracy is a guarantee of top-level durability.

Your company’s technological edge has a name: ­Tubular Shaft Motor – from world market leader ­Mitsubishi Electric.

The speed of light...

…for communication by fibre optics.

The Tubular Shaft Motor with its highly responsive control fully exploits the benefits of high communication speed. No heat, no maintenance and no contact – just extra precision for good. At Mitsubishi Electric, this is known as “Changes for the Better”.

Focus on ergonomics

Set-up, programming, maintenance etc. – all the key elements are directly accessible at the front of the machine. The entire wire feed, automatic wire thread­­ing and wire guide heads plus the whole workspace are readily accessible – not least thanks to the open design and automatic vertical sliding door.

Crash Protection System already installed.

A considered and far-sighted approach is the best safety policy – but what if things have to be done in a rush? An intelligent EDM system that spots and prevents possible collisions contributes to safety at work and saves annoyance and time.

Round diamond guide

Maximum precision and durability ensure the best results in the long run – inclusive of maintenance-­friendliness due to a small number of parts and simple design.

Fully automatic

The wire-cut EDM systems from Mitsubishi Electric constantly check current axial forces and thus fully ­automatically detect potential accidents before they happen. If there is an obstacle in the travel path, this is electronically detected on the basis of the drive’s load change during the approach and the control ­automatically reverses. Better safe than sorry!

No disruptive cogging torque

You’re surely familiar with the cogging torque ma­n­i­fested by a conventional electric motor. It is precisely this cogging torque that is undesirable, as are variations in torque. The Tubular Shaft Motor – the optimal drive for precision applications like electrical discharge machining.

Technology

Wire break point insertion even on thick and ­interrupted workpieces.

The time-consuming return to the starting point is omitted – and machining continues where it left off, thanks to the highly advanced wire annealing system. Depending on machining conditions, threading can be successfully performed with or without jet stream and even submerged – depending on workpiece thickness.

Extra precision and speed thanks to the generator that not only thinks, but also thinks ahead.

If you want to achieve better surface quality with fewer ­recuts, you need the right blend of mutually adapted technologies. With Precise Finish Circuit, you achieve more ­precise results faster.

Automatic wire threading – equipped for any ­situation

The time-consuming return to the starting point is omitted – and machining continues where it left off, thanks to the highly advanced wire annealing system. Depending on machining conditions, threading can be successfully performed with or without jet stream and even submerged – depending on workpiece thickness.

17% faster multi-pass jobs

4 cuts of Ra 0.28 µm compared to a ­conventional machine.

Greater speed and accuracy – for better economy with maximum precision.

Response time is decisive

An EDM machine that reacts with greater speed and precision achieves better surface quality faster. The new H-FS generator has a significantly higher effective clock rate. The voltage is built up faster and with greater precision thanks to reduced capacitance loss. Thanks to faster voltage build-up, spark duration and working voltage can be lowered. All that you will probably notice is higher surface quality and lower power costs. The standard SD-FS delivers the best finish – up to Ra 0.05 µm in Tungsten Carbide.

Parallelism in the µm range

Parallelism of cutting punches in the < ± 2 µm range for cutting heights of 100 mm – demanded by toolmakers and achieved by the MP Series.

0.05 µm surface roughness

The new SD-FS fine finishing generator is installed as standard in the MP Series. Its action range yields superlative surfaces up to 130 mm cutting height.

New H-FS generator

Achieve excellent surface qualities with the new H-FS generator.

Process Control at its best – Power Master

The Power Master Control gives the most highest level of process stability – whatever the shape being cut. Stepped workpiece shapes, boreholes and other obstacles to a stable cutting process are identified as soon as they appear and the control adopts cutting and flushing parameters for a safe process and superlative accuracy.

Getting a grip on radii and corners

On small inner and outer corners and complicated geometries, Corner Master 3 comes to your aid. You merely define your priorities, and optimisation is performed accordingly.

Intercepting the waste – fully automatically

During roughing, a bridge is controllably created to hold the waste material – the waste material cannot fall. In this way many features can be rough-­machined and, after removal of the waste material, recut – fully automatically and unmanned, overnight and at weekends. Lower costs, higher profits.

Long-running jobs with multiple cut-outs

The number and length of fixing points are easy to set in different ways: directly via a comfortable dialogue menu within the CNC or on external programming systems supporting this function.

Reducing machining time

Standard core connections are replaced by easily removable fixing points, thus reducing the manned time for picking up core parts dramatically. Instead of cutting off the material bridges slowly, the core can be easily removed from the workpiece with slight manual pressure to the core, so the finishing process can start sooner. Remarkable time saving in detail help to reduce overall processing time, contributing to higher process efficiency.

Control

Intuitive operation – for the benefit of the ­machine operator.

The user interface is child’s play to handle – gesture con­trol inclusive. While some choose dialogue-supported user guidance, others opt for professional mode to get off to a speedy start. The control adapts to the user.

Intelligent D-CUBES control

… simply shifts the future into the present. The user has almost half a metre of user interface to work with, assisted in this by the mouse and the usual computer keyboard. The monitoring of the machin­ing process generates neatly displayed information at a glance and detailed analysis where desired.

Network for productivity

All the critical data can be conveniently retrieved ­through the ERP system. The Controller supplies all relevant operational data for further external use – as a standard function. Important interfaces such as Ethernet TCP/IP are of course part of the package.

Touch Control

Slim ergonomic manual control box

The ergonomically designed, intelligent manual control box unites all the relevant functions for control and set-up in a single unit. The integrated LCD display can be individually configured by the operator. Inclusive of buttons for driving all 8 possible CNC axes.

Multi-touch display with gesture control

Intuitive operation from the large screen with modern gesture control boosts comfort, while the configura­ble user interface supports the user by allowing the main functional elements to be freely arranged dur­ing daily work.

An easy start thanks to dialogue guidance

With step-by-step dialogue guidance, less experi­enced users are piloted through the entire process, from programming through to the start of machin­ing. Checklists make it possible to review all process-­relevant settings and machine states so that machining yields the best-possible results without ­interruption.

Everything at a glance

The easy-to-grasp display of all the key machining parameters in configurable form keeps everything under control at all times. Clearly visible at a glance are – if desired – machining status, elapsed times, state of maintenance and other data. Configuration couldn’t be simpler.

Work scheduling – at the machine

During the preparation of pending machining tasks, support is provided by overviews of the remaining wire, state of filter cartridges and deionisation ­resin, and other parameters. This way you can prevent ­outages caused by finite consumables or wear parts and optimise machine running times.

Help at a keystroke

The complete machine documents inclusive of maintenance instructions are always available, and the right help is quickly found. Comprehensibility is aided by photos and 3D depiction.

Clamp it and press Start! Smart user guidance, easy work set-up.

If time is of the essence or you want the machines to take some of the work off your shoulders. Set-up often takes too long; from now on, you can save this time.

Highly accurate probing cycles on the sides and ­corners measure the workpiece precisely. With or without jet stream or even submerged, by means of the cutting wire or with the optional 3D touch probe – just as you wish.

Fully automatic alignment cycles

Intelligent user guidance takes you to the finish. The electrical discharge machine takes you quickly to your goal.

Manual control

Comfortable set-up with the manual control box: standard equipment with Mitsubishi Electric. All essential control functions at hand – wherever you need them.

3D position measuring – manual or automatic

Both are possible. As a user, you decide whether you do set-up classically by hand or the machine automatically defines the position of your workpiece. Using the cutting wire or pick-up coil – the machine takes care of it for you. It only takes the press of a button.

Integrated job scheduling

Greater flexibility thanks to adaptable job scheduling: with the simple assignment of priorities, you can quickly respond to changing requirements and squeeze in an urgently needed part with ease. ­Several machining programs can be deposited in the job scheduler and managed there.

Fast and flexible work planning

This is the easy way to add new jobs during machin­ing or change the order of existing machining op­er­ations. The new job processing system with priority management makes it possible to amend a machin­ing list without interrupting machining.

Pause a job – and resume

A machining process is easy to pause even in mid-flow when urgent jobs have to be processed. The control stores the current state of machining. When the inserted job has been completed, machining can be immediately resumed at the point of interruption. Pushbutton flexibility without programming effort.

Far-sighted maintenance management

All the key consumables are monitored online and presented with their anticipated remaining life. This includes display of the remaining life of the wire spool installed in the machine as well as indication of filter pressure and, calculated from this, the prob­able period until the next filter change.

Visual process management

Machine states depicted over time make capacity utilisation easier to grasp and assist forward-looking production planning. This overview is supplemented by a list of completed machining jobs and the associated machine times and unit costs.

Analysis of operating costs

Given knowledge of unit costs and their inclusion in the machine’s own analysis, records of consumption data such as energy consumption, wire consumption and component wear help with cost analysis and the costing of pending machining jobs.

After-sales service online

Rapid online help to reduce downtime and expenditure on service assignments. Applications support with ­direct access to the machine control can provide the machine operator with optimum and rapid assistance when faced with difficult tasks. All in the aid of improving production operations.

Process data management

Operating and process data can be retrieved at the control. Available as standard is an export function for all process data, operating states, con­sumption data and maintenance states as well as alarms. This way the data from several machines can be viewed and evaluated in consolidated form, through to their integration in higher-order production man­agement systems.

No compromising on security

Anti-virus protection is ensured as standard by one of the world’s leading software systems in security control.

Always up to date – wherever you are.

You can control the machine and keep an eye on processes, wherever you are. ­Intelligent communication takes the pressure out of work. Ideal combined with automation solutions and high process autonomy with the intelligent AT wire threader.
