Fast, accurate electrical discharge machining

Where wire EDM is concerned, accuracy has traditionally come at the cost of speed. That’s why FANUC has developed a next generation ROBOCUT wire-cutting machine. The α-CiC series comprises two versatile all-rounders. With incredibly long mean times between failures, low maintenance, longevity and excellent uptimes, these future-proof spark erosion machines are designed to save time and drive down unit costs while ensuring superlative accuracy and cutting efficiency.

Breakthrough advances for exceptional cutting performance

Intelligent wire EDM software for rapid threading

Automatic wire threading in just 10 seconds

FANUC’s unique AWF3 Automatic Wire Feed threading technology provides fast, reliable automatic threading in just 10 seconds. To ensure reliable threading and re-threading, wires are cut electrically leaving a pointed end that is absolutely straight and burr-free, even on soft wire. Aided by a jet of water, threading the wire is both simple and very fast.

Easy-to-set CORE STITCH function

ROBOCUT α-CiC series’ CORE STITCH function allows you to better plan cutting jobs and extend unmanned machining hours. Stitch points are set directly on the wire-cutting machine’s CNC without any pre-programming. Used in combination with the re-threading in the wire path function, this is the ideal solution for long lasting unmanned machining and multi-workpiece cutting processes. When the job is done you simply knock out the cores manually without any risk to the machine.
