Sinker EDM


Sinker EDM

The EDGE3i machine provides open and unrestricted access for the operator to the work zone with a 4-sided programmable rise and fall work tank, and achieves reliable and repeatable precision through a stationary work table design. 
The foot print of the EDGE3i is dramatically reduced by integrating the di-electric reservoir into the base casting of the machine, eliminating the need for external holding tanks, and this design enhances thermal stability coupled with the standard di-electric chiller unit.  Floor space requirements are further reduced by the integral design of the ATC (Automatic Tool Change) system, which is located beneath the X/Y machine structure, providing greater process efficiency and unattended operation.
The Windows-based Hyper-i control system provides user-friendly machine operation, and utilizes a 21.5” touch screen display.  Incorporating the most current interface technologies used by SmartPhones and Tablets, Makino’s Hyper Control makes use of Pinch, Swipe and Spread functions that provide the operator with a simple and natural feel that is comfortable and extremely efficient. The user friendliness of the Hyper Control is further enhanced with the integration of on-board digital manuals, intelligent help functions, and e-Learning training system.

The EDGE3i is configured for safe and reliable operation, and is equipped with a Flame Sensor, Fire Suppression system, and an advanced Handbox with an LED display and Emergency Stop button.
