Seibu MEX15: Ultra Precision

Precision Wire EDMs ±0.5 μm pitch accuracy

Seibu’s MEX15 wire EDM is built to conquer the impossible in wire EDM precision. The machine is designed to deliver ultra-precision by holding a pitch accuracy of ±0.5 μm. It has the ability to achieve roundness of 0.5 μm, straightness of 0.1 μm and can thread wire as small as 0.001 inch. The Machine is available in Water and Oil Specs. Machine castings are ground and hand scrapped for complete flatness. Guideways are checked for flatness, lasered for straightness and test cuts are performed on all machines which are then checked on a CMM for accuracy resulting in high precision parts. The new Smart NC (Fanuc Control) 21.5” touch panel, that can access all operations like a smartphone. The control has been customized to show more information so operators can check the necessary cutting data or maintenance work on any screen at any time.
