The FORM 200, like the FORM 300 and FORM 400, further demonstrates GF AgieCharmilles’ commitment to helping customers achieve more success in fast-growing industrial areas including automotive, home appliances and aerospace where it is essential to machine a high number of electrodes with high quality and superior efficiency. The compact RTC brings a new dimension of value to the already impressive FORM 200 by managing tool changing and the data around those processes.
Like all machines in GF AgieCharmilles’ FORM range, the FORM 200 features the new and ergonomic AC FORM HMI for a new level of logic, speed and safety. Developed on the basis of a study with numerous customers to streamline the mold making process, AC FORM HMI is organized on one menu level where all icons are arranged logically and in chronological order of use, and dynamic contextual help is always just a click away.
Featuring easy setup, a smart module to enhance machining efficiency and reduce unpro-ductive time, a high-power generator, and built-in technology to eliminate electrode wear, the FORM 200 delivers versatility, reliability and ease of use.
Moreover, the FORM 200 has onboard intelligence that makes it easy for less experienced machinists to achieve expert results with very little training. Elimination of a steep learning curve means novice machinists can operate the FORM 200, and expert machinists can be allocated to more demanding tasks.
