Discover the new FANUC ROBOCUT α-CiC series
Depending on the travel axis you need, choose from one of FANUC’s renowned α-CiC series models to accomplish fast high-precision wire electrical discharge machining. To benefit from consistent cutting across a wide range of applications opt for either the α-C400iC, α-C600iC or from the former series α-C800iB.
What is ROBOCUT?
ROBOCUT is FANUC’s wire EDM machine. Electro-discharge machining is the go-to process for parts out of electrically conductive materials where intricate contours or cavities are required, particularly in hard metals or those that would be difficult to machine using conventional techniques such as milling, turning or grinding.
Why choose ROBOCUT?
With ROBOCUT you take a decision for a high level of reliability, cutting speed, surface finish and dimensional precision. Offering all-round, high-quality cutting performance in a multitude of applications, the new ROBOCUT α-CiC series will bring you genuine competitive gain. They are economical to run and provide a great return on investment.
Which models of ROBOCUT?
Depending on requirements, FANUC ROBOCUT α-CiC series comes with two model sizes: the ROBOCUT α-C400iC and ROBOCUT α-C600iC. Users can load workpieces with dimensions up to 1050 x 775 x 400 mm in the X, Y and Z axis respectively, with a maximum weight of 1000 kg.
ENHANCE YOUR WIRE EDM PROCESSES
Automatic wire threading
The unique AWF3 technology provides fast, reliable automatic threading in just 10 seconds under non-submerge condition . It allows automatic wire feeding up to 500 mm under submerge conditions depending on the machine configuration.
FANUC iH Pro can highlight impending issues prior to failure, even providing a video or image that outlines how rectification can take place in-house to minimise downtime. Furthermore, the inclusion of a hardened workpiece table as standard, prevents any potential for scratches to develop.
Thanks to improvements in taper cutting performance and ease of adjustment the traditionally complex operation of setting and adjusting the wire taper is straightforward by using a basic jig guided by on-screen instructions.
High speed and high precision cutting
FANUC’s discharge control iPulse3 ensures high performance of cutting by corner control and step shape control.
Designed for easy automation
Easy robot access for loading heavier workpieces as well as an ergonomically designed work area ensure troublefree machine tending.
40 years of experience building wire EDM machines and passion for perfection results in high reliability. FANUC is very proud to produce high quality products that will work perfectly for a long time, supporting the customers to work effectively and to increase their productivity.
For which companies is a ROBOCUT suitable?
The ideal choice for your industry no matter what size
Job shoppers and mould makers industry
Electrical and IT parts industry
Each ROBOCUT α-CiC series machine comes with an extra durable non-scratch table as standard which prevents scratches and allows accuracy and reliability to be maintained over time.
Minimises the risk of wire breakages at high machining speeds, even under difficult conditions such as those involving wide nozzle distances or changing cutting heights.
Delivering significantly improved accuracy, a special factory-calibrated compensation grid ensures pitch error correction over the entire X-Y table area as opposed to the conventionally used single central point.
New function includes an operation screen and a jig for high-precision taper cutting.
