As a result of all this hard work and previous studies, we were able to provide the customer with a fully customised die sinking EDM machine programmed according to their specific needs for the machining of diffuser holes with complex geometry in turbine blades. As the customer informed us, our turnkey solution was also more cost-effective than other alternatives on the market.
The ONA IRIS6 machine incorporates a smart digital generator, a game-changing technological innovation in EDM technology. It is 30% more powerful than other more advanced generators. It can reach up to 400 amps, four times more powerful than the standard generator, and is designed to optimise the die sinking EDM process by controlling the energy input of each discharge, thereby reducing electrode wear by up to 500%.
The most important aeronautical companies in the world already use ONA machines in their processes, and our objective is to continue innovating and expanding in an industry in which EDM is going to play an increasingly important role. While not so long ago only a few applications were manufactured using EDM technology, nowadays, thanks to the major technological breakthrough brought by the new digital generators, electrical discharge machining has now become the technological norm for manufacturing vital parts such as impellers, IBRs, OGVs, turbine discs or combustion chambers, among others. otras.
