Brandauer use the latest George Fisher (GF) AgieCharmilles wire EDM technology, all fully interfaced with the appropriate CAD/CAM software. This state-of-the-art technology, and the skills and experience of Brandauer engineers will deliver a complete manufacturing solution for every situation.
The technology utilised in the wire EDM cell is very rare in the UK and carries benefits unmatched by the competition which will increase accuracy and speed to market for any new tooling requirements.
Brandauer operate two AgieCharmilles GF CUT 3000 machines, an investment that is typical of the firm’s constant drive for precision in every respect. These machines are 1 micron capable, on a long bed CNC table geometry, making high speed, high precision, 1,250mm modular tools a reality.
Fundamental is the increased machining speed compared to the alternatives, thanks to the Direct Power supply module.
Through its wire EDM technology, Brandauer meet the challenges of miniaturisation and high precision, whilst maximising productivity.
Brandauer can machine with wires as small as 0.05mm in diameter and thanks to the crossed table situated directly under the work piece to be machined, high precision guides and high-precision glass scales are situated as close as possible to the machining zone. This choice contributes to the factor of maximising precision and the repeatability of positioning. The play in inversion is almost eliminated.
Operating alongside the GF AgieCharmilles CUT 3000s is an abundance of other advanced machinery including the GF AgieCharmilles CUT E600 for general purpose EDM machining and the GF AgieCharmilles DRILL 20, often used for drilling starting holes with the electrode range Ø 0.1 – 3.0 mm.
Brandauer’s 45,000-square foot facility, allows for over 50 distinct components in production at any one time. With presses operating at 2,000 strokes per minute, you have the potential of millions of components a day at your disposal.
