Mainly in 2017, MOLMAT has invested in the wire work with the acquisition of SODIK technology and Fikus Visualcam software, Cimatech CAD/CAM’s wire EDM program, which is the most advanced in the industry. Fikus Visualcam allows machining for the form or outline of any mould, former, piercer or cavity. It also allows control of every cutting parameter, such as offset, automatic threading, position of the wire, constant and variable taper, and our latest improvement, Auto-fix, control of the remnant size for a better part disengage.
The results from that investment have exceeded expectations. This work has made a significant contribution to improving the efficiency of our processes and has allowed us to reduce costs and, consequently, made our projects more competitive.
