Oct. 31, 2017 – The new M800 EDM control, now included in Mitsubishi wire EDM machines, aims to increase productivity and help keep track of production jobs.
The M800 series control uses rotational and tilting functionality, while providing job monitoring and other information in a single view. The 19-inch touchscreen enables the user to swipe, pinch and tap to view, providing a simplified interface to interact with than previous models. The processable data available with this control ensures transparency in all production stages, says the company, adding that the new navigation interface provides smooth and easy job operation time for various operator expertise levels. Additionally, the M800 control enables the user to analyze machine profitability and see reserves in an effort to help optimize processes and boost efficiency. Diagrams are available to depict operating costs and output, and all operating material statuses and maintenance cycles is readily accessible. Currently, the MV1200-S, MV1200-R, MV2400-S and MV2400-R Advance wire EDMs feature the M800 control; MC Machinery says it is working on incorporating this technology in its laser machines as well. MC Machinery Systems is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation.
