Wire Joining Tooling
This quick release wire joining tooling was made from hardened steel types P20 plates (1.27), and Gauge Plate (1.28), H13 insert & slides and capable of at least 1 million + castings.
The tooling was created using a 3 axis Mazak for the inserts and dies and blocks, a 5 axis Hurco for the bolster, and an Ops Ingersoll High Speed Eagle V creating the electrodes to 10 microns. Each core needed 30 electrodes to complete the fine detail, and a Ingersoll Gantry Eagle 400 EDM spark erosion machine. The process was measured at all stages to 10 -30 microns.
The tooling was completed in 7 weeks
