Charmilles’ Robofil 2030SI-TW revolutionizes wire EDM with automatic wire changer feature
<%=company1%> revolutionizes the wire EDM field with the world premiere of the Robobil 2030SI-TW (Twin Wire) Electrical Discharge Machine. The Robofil 2030SI-TW is the first wire EDM to feature a fully automated dual-wire system. Now it is possible to perform a quick changeover without operator intervention.

The productivity gains from this unattended ability are significant. Depending on the application, productivity can reduce machining times from 30 to 50 percent because the large diameter wire can be used for pocketing in the rough cut and the small wire is applied for small-radius finishing. Total machining time is reduced in this process which boosts productivity.

The Robofil 2030SI-TW does not require any special technologies or programming. Installation of the two wires does not complicate the use of the machine since the set-up is automatic for both. During machining, the Robofil 2030SI-TW automatically switches to another wire as needed. This changeover takes less than 45 seconds.

Charmilles Technologies Corporation is the worldwide leading manufacturer of wire EDM systems, and CNC diesinking and manual EDM systems.
