EZ-EDM is a sophisticated 2 through 5 axis wire EDM system that can handle even the most difficult applications. In-cluded are automatic machining strategies such as multi-pass contouring with stop, retract and cutoff options, and no-core-cut pocketing. The newly developed Punch and Die features help reduce workload by combining all task related operations into simplified and user-friendly dialogs. Convenient auto male/female part recognition plus ac-cess to every single wire movement via the motion record provides full control of taper and wire compensation regis-ters at all times. The proven geometry interface now im-ports solids and surface models via IGES and STL. Extensive 3D surface creation and editing functions like the new Extract Cross Section command drastically ease the task of creating the Machining curves.
