Product Focus 68 MoldMaking Technology —— AUGUST 2018 HMC Cuts Large Aerospace Parts The FZH HMC from Zimmermann is designed for parts as large as 630" x 122" x 39". Minimum part size in the X axis is 161". Said to be well-suited for the aerospace indus- try, the machine features an updated pallet handling system and traveling column. The traveling column is water-cooled and avoids deviation increases as the slide extends. Rather, as the guide carriage distance increases, rigidity increases as well. The stepped drive guide contributes to constant geometry along the Z axis, as well as rigidity in sensitive areas of the workpiece. Zimmermann Inc. - Corporate HQ South, Level 3, Booth 339336 Entry-Level EDM Features Break-Through Detection Methods Machine Tools will display Ocean Technologies' compact, entry-level River 300 EDM drill. It features break-through detection and an HP1+ power supply for reduced wear and shorter burn times with low energy consumption. The machine uses linear guideways and a 100L DI/Filter. The XYZ-axis travels measure 11.8" x 7.9" x 11.8" (300 x 200 x 300 mm). Its W-axis travel measures 13.8" (350 mm). Table dimensions are 13.8" x 9.9" (350 x 250 mm). Maximum workpiece height is 11.8" (300 mm) with workpiece weight capacity at 330 lbs (150 kg). E-Learning software is featured on the machine, enabling new operators to easily run it while seasoned operators can review particular processes on the fly.
