Wire Cut EDMMitsubishi Electric says its Wire Cut EDM (electric discharge machine) series feature a new drive concept based on combining tubular shaft motors with a fibre optic control system.

The company claims these motors ensure smooth and highly controllable movements without 'cogging'. Their control is based on an optical network which enables high speed communication between the individual machine components.

The Wire Cut EDM series also feature a sophisticated generator that produces a highly optimised discharge control.
