Robocut α-CiC Series


Adding to its line of wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) products, the FANUC RoboCut α-CiC series creates a faster, more exact EDM experience. The line currently offers two sizes: RoboCut α-C400iC and RoboCut α-C600iC.


Constructed for ultimate rigidity, the advanced EDM machines minimize the amount of distortion embedded into each part. New discharge devices, powered by the SF3 power supply, improve surface roughening capabilities while maintaining high cutting speeds.


Additional features include a taper adjustment function for high-precision taper cutting, thermal displacement compensation for increased stability, and faster cycle times thanks to the automatic wire feeding system, AWF3, and core stitch technology.


The RoboCut α-C400iC has travel lengths of 15.748 in. on the X-axis, 11.811 in. on the Y-axis, and 10.039 in. on the Z-axis. Travel on the α-C600iC is 23.622 in., 15.748 in., and 12.204 in. on the X, Y, and Z-axis, respectively.


The new models replace their respective counterparts in the α-CiB series. The C800iB, which belongs to the previous generation of RoboCut α-CiB, is still a part of Methods’ product offering.
