In order to meet the needs of our customers, we decided to purchase GF CUT P 550, the latest in wire cutting technology. The new wire cutter is from the GF Machining Solutions range of one of the world’s leading manufacturers, the Swiss GF Group. This is our fifth wire cutter.
Wire cutting is a versatile method of making extruder nozzles, active parts of cutters, and various machine parts with the precision of a thousandth of a millimetre. Difficult-to-cut shapes that cannot be machined by milling can often be wire cut. The more precise the dimensions and the more challenging the surface quality, the better suited the project is for wire cutting. Wire cutting is not limited to machining individual workpieces, but is also suitable for serial production.
Tamspark is a hardware and software supplier and specialist for milling, wire cutting, sparking and grinding machines. The company is a serving importer that offers its customers not only high-end machines but also technical support for the machines and products it represents.
