Product Description U86

The physique to tackle extremely large part details, with the fineness and precision of smaller machines


The U86 Wire EDM machine provides larger machine travels and work tank to accommodate parts up to 1,400mm x 987mm (55.1″ x 38.8“) with weights up to 3,000kg (6,614 lbs.).  While the machine has the physique to tackle extremely large part details, it retains the fineness and precision capabilities of smaller machines such as the U6 H.E.A.T.  The machine utilizes a stationary work table design that improves accuracy by eliminating variables such as work piece and di-electric weight shifting that can negatively impact machine movement.  A space-savings design minimizes the machine footprint by incorporating the di-electric reservoir into the base casting, and this also improves machine thermal stability.

Uncompromising user-friendliness are hallmarks of the U86 with its 3-sided rise & fall work tank and Hyper i control.  The rise & fall work tank offers the operator unimpeded access to the work zone from 3 sides.  This dramatically improves the safety and ergonomics for loading and unloading of large parts, and also simplifies machine access for maintenance procedures.  The U86 is standard with a 520mm (20.47”) Z-Stroke, but an extended 620mm (24.41”) version is also available.  Both Z-Stroke configurations position from Z-Zero to the maximum height, so there are no unusable dead zones, and the maximum work tank fill height is 50mm (1.96”) above the highest Z-Stroke position.
