Gibbs Gears sub contract Wire Eroding section is based on a selection of new Agie-Charmilles WEDM machines, designed to cover the spectrum of customer requirements.
These include: The 300ms offers a zero-re-cast layer (no white layer), opening up the process to the Aerospace and Formula 1 industry who previously could not use wire eroding due to the finished surface condition.
We use standard WEDM wire diameters of 0.30mm to 0.15mm from brass to a zinc coated variety to aid final surface finish of the wire eroded components. The whole WEDM section is covered by the CAD-CAM format interface DWG+DXF+ISO+STEP programming off line. This WEDM/Wire Eroding section of Gibbs Gears, including the zero-recast facility (without white layer) covers the needs of industry today.
