5-axis machining & multi-axis milling machines allow the spindle to be positioned in several planes and/or angles to the workpiece. Five sides of a prismatic part can be machined in a single operation thus reducing set-up times (and improving metal removal efficiency & precision, tool life and surface finish and reducing tolerance build-up)
Mill-turn machining centres converge two metal cutting technologies into a single machine. Components which were traditionally processed on multiple machines can now be ‘done-in-one’. This technology allows Di-Spark to be lean, efficient and cost effective
Wire Erosion machines use a continuously moving wire acting as the ‘cutting tool’ (whilst technically being an electrode). Much like a band saw in principle, metal is actually removed by vapourising material through the thermal energy of repetitive sparks. Components in difficult to machine materials can be cut by wire erosion
Spark Erosion machines use a machined electrode to impart its form into the workpiece. Metal is actually removed by vapourising material through the thermal energy of repetitive sparks. Geometries that are impossible to produce by conventional machining can be produced by Spark Erosion EDM
