PEM 800

PEMControl

The PEM 800 machine produces high precision metal parts that are absolutely burr-free without thermal or mechanical stresses, microcracks, white layers or electrode wear. The non-contact machining process delivers surface finishes down to (and better than) Ra ±0.05µm for prototyping, batch quantities, and mass production.

The big brother of the family, the PEM 800 offers a larger working area (allowing for the use of bigger tools), a 9,600-amp generator, larger build components, doors that move sideways, and an axis drive that has been modified for enhanced performance.

The PEM 800 is the right choice for all those production jobs where you need to think big.

 

PEM 800 SPECIFICATIONS:
STRUCTURE

Exceptionally rigid natural granite frame on vibration-isolating feet. Stationary machining table with integrated stainless steel T-slots.

TABLE DIMENSIONS

25.98” x 21.26” (W x D) 800 x 640 mm
FOOTPRINT

230.6” x 85.04” (W x D) 5857 x 2160 mm, including PEMAQUA 2,000 L electrolyte preparation

VERTICAL FEED

Air bearing maintenance-free precision direct drive axis.

OSCILLATION RANGE

Choose at time of order: 0.4mm or 0.2mm
MEASURING SYSTEM

High resolution absolute linear digital glass scales

FIXTURE CLAMPING

4 T-Slots (M12) in table

OPERATION

Ambient temperature: 60°F to 95°F (15°C to 35°C). The highest precision reached at a constant temperature of 68°F (20°C). Relative humidity max: 75% at 68°F (20°C)

GENERATOR

Water-cooled modular generator delivers precision pulse power – monitoring voltage, current and pulse length in the µ-second range. Choice of 1,200 to 9,600 A output (available in increments of 1200 A)

ELECTROLYTE PREPARATION

The environmentally-friendly PEMAqua electrolyte conditioning system has a multi-chamber tank with overflow protection. The unit filters, backflushes, cools, heats, and adjusts for optimal conductivity and pH; and then safely stores waste.

INSTALLATION

No special machine foundation or footing required.

WEIGHT

4629 lbs (2100 kg) approx.

AXES

A- and C-axis optional for added versatility

CONTROL

Using the PEMControl, operators can monitor and adapt all process steps and
application parameters for the PEMMachine, PEMPower, and PEMAqua. Program the machining steps and monitor the process in real-time using freely adjustable tolerance bands. Archive your individual program steps, measured values, and error messages for fast analysis and correction. Export for offline evaluation. Includes HMI PC keyboard and 17” touchscreen.

SAFETY

Real-time process monitoring and optimization. CE certified.
