MMS AUGUST 2018 178 IMTS 2018 EDM Equipment Wire EDM Machines 3D-Printed Workpieces Sodick's VL600QH wire EDM unit is designed to meet the needs of the growing 3D-printing market. The machine provides a high Z-axis capacity without the costly features of larger machines. It is designed for postprocessing of 3D-printed metal parts with reliability. Its Z-axis height mea- sures 19.7" and its X- and Y-axis travels measure 24" × 17", making it capable of machining most additive workpieces. | Sodick Inc. | East, Level 3, Booth 134802 Dielectric Fluid Provides Safe, Effective Flushing Hirschmann Engineering's IonoPlus 3000 dielectric fluid suits operations from rough cutting to fine fin- ishing. Advantages include flushing effectiveness and disruptive strength, the company says. The fluid has been tested for operational safety and industrial hygiene by the Institute for Research and Control of Work Materi- als in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and does not produce toxic or allergic symptoms. The air surround- ing the workplace does not reach a tolerance limit. Micro molecules surround the electrode like a protec- tive grid, and chemical-sat- ellite electrodes distribute the discharges. The com- pany says the dielectric fluid enables users to achieve surface roughness of less that 0.1 micron quickly. Swift dispersion of waste particles helps to prevent burn spots from forming. | Hirschmann Engineering USA Inc. | East, Level 3, Booth 134812 Aviation & Aerospace • Automotive • Communications • Electronics • Hydraulics Current EDM, Inc. 2577 Leghorn Street Mountain View, CA 94043 Phone (650) 966-9676 Technical Center 9201 Penn Avenue South, Suite 40 Bloomington, MN 55431 USA Phone (763) 476-2290 WWW.CURRENTEDM.COM • email: INFO@CURRENTEDM.COM Visit us at Booth 135051 High Production EDM Drilling Machines Speed, Accuracy, Consistency and Reliability are paramount when running production.
