Wire EDM Level 2 - Optimization and Application Strategies
The Optimization and Application Strategies course will start with a short review of the material covered in the Level 1 course. Discussion points will cover the functions of the Position select, Z position, Main and Sub programming, automated pickups, use of soft limits, work offsets, and machining multiple workpieces.
This will be followed by a lecture on advanced machining concepts and common program difficulties. Several optimization strategies will be demonstrated which are applications specific. Technology manipulation will be highlighted. A better understanding of the various circuits and machine functions will be provided.
More time and detail will be spent on material preparation, how to compensate when parts move during the cut, and how to adjust and stabilize a burn. Also discussed is when to use each of the 3 modes of Power Master during roughing operations, as well as techniques to correct straightness during skimming. Other topics include: Maximum Angle calculations, Angle changes, how to use SMOOTH Taper along with setting and hardware adjustments necessary for different degrees of taper.
Course instructors welcome real world topics from the students and will clarify any related troubleshooting techniques and strategies.
Who should attend:
This course is designed for operators who have either attended the Machine Fundamental course or operated the equipment for at least one-year. Assuming that the attendee has previous equipment familiarity there will be only a limited review of basic functions and controls.
A good understanding of CNC operations and general Wire EDM concepts is suggested. Knowledge of industry terms used in this course will greatly aid in utilization of the strategies discussed.
