Narrow pitch positioning on the incorporated connector is essential
for attaining high densities on electrical and electronic parts.
The MA2000 and EA8PV are capable of attaining optimally sharp
corners and fine finishing on high-accuracy connectors for flexible
printed circuit (FPC) board.

Example of die cast mold machining
When machining the die for die-casting parts, such as
automobile engine cases, tall workpieces are machined
with a complex and complicated electrode.
To maintain stable machining, the effect of changes in
the environmental temperature must be suppressed to
a minimum.
Thermal displacement compensation function (standard for all Advance models, MA2000 and EA medium-to large-sized models)
Adaptive machining control: GF2 control
• Changes in room temperature around the machine are recognized and
compensated for in real-time
• The machining accuracy during long-time continuous machining is
dramatically improved
• This function's effect is further improved by using the fluid circulation
function during setup
• The electrical-discharge state during rough machining is optimally
controlled to realize ultralow-wear machining

Machining stabilizing jump control: SS Jump 3 (standard for all models)
Adaptive machining control: GF2 control + Fuzzy control + SS Jump 3
• This control is effective during jump up operations for flat electrodes on
which a large load is applied for large electrodes
• The load on the electrode is reduced by optimized smoothing of the
jump movement, thereby stabilizing machining and increasing the
speed
• High-accuracy machining can be maintained by reducing the load onto
the Z-axis (spindle)
• Rough machining can be stabilized and the speed increased by
using these controls together with the jump control

MA, EA Series Product Introduction
Diverse Line-up for Machining Large Workpieces
Automatic vertical front door (EA40/EA50)
(EA30/EA40/EA50)
The working tank door opens and closes automatically when a button
is pressed. In addition, work safety and operability are enhanced
as the front door's clamp is automatically latched.
• Temperature sensors constantly monitor changes in the environment
• Axes are controlled in real-time based on changes in temperature
• Highly accurate machining, less affected by the work environment, is possible

When handling hazardous materials, such as an EDM and
cutting oil, which have a flash point between 70 and 200°C in
the same building, applications must be filed to the fire
department according to the total amount handled.
(4) Machine heating value
Use the equipment capacity to calculate the EDM's heating
value required for designing a constant-temperature room.
(1) Class C grounding (isolated) is recommended (dedicated
grounding for EDM).
Always use one-point grounding (Fig. 1).
Note) Provide isolated grounding for each machine.
Machine Specifications
and Options
• If there is any possibility of radio disturbance, refer to the "EDM
Radio Disturbance and Countermeasures", and investigate the
state beforehand. Class C grounding is recommended
• Prepare the following air source: 0.5 to 0.7MPa, flow rate of
27R/min or more (36R/min or more when using a built-in spindle,
0.6MPa or more when using EROWA tooling specifications)
• Prepare an air hose with inner diameter of φ9 to 10mm (The
coupler socket 20SH is enclosed with the machine)
• The standard EA8, EA12V and EA28V specifications do not
require an air source, but the above-mentioned air supply must be
prepared when using the optional built-in C-axis, etc
(3) Humidity
Within 35 to 75%RH (with no dew condensation).
■Grounding work
The EDM must always be grounded to prevent external noise,
prevent radio disturbance, and prevent earth leakage.
Class C grounding (grounding resistance 10Ω or less) as set
forth in the Electric Facility Standards is recommended for the
EDM.

3) Confirmation of foundation floor
Dielectric fluid is regulated by related ordinances as a
"Hazardous Class 4 No. 3 petroleum". The designated quantity
set forth by ordinances is 2,000R (depending on the country
and region).
(8) Ventilation of combustible vapors
Install a ventilator to effectively remove combustible vapors
and fine powders.

※Contact the manufacturer for the Material Safety Data Sheet.
(2) Atmosphere
Install the EDM in an environment with no corrosive gases,
such as acid or salt, or mist, and with low levels of dust.
Abrasive powder from grinding machinery can adversely
affect the machine's sliding sections and drive sections
such as the ball screws, so pay special attention to the
installation place. (Separate the EDM from the grinding
machinery, install in a separate room, etc.)
(7) Room construction
The room where the EDM is to be installed must be a nonflammable or fire-proof structure.
Contact your local fire department for details.

■Installation location
Select a place that satisfies the following conditions for
installing the EDM.
(1) Room temperature
* Recommended room temperature: 20±1°C (68±2°F)
* Usable temperature range 5 to 35°C (41 to 95°F)
Fluctuation of the temperature will directly affect the
machine accuracy, so to maintain accuracy, select a place
with little temperature fluctuation. Note that the machining
accuracy may be adversely affected in an environment
where the temperature fluctuates by 3°C (5.4°F) or more
within 24 hours, or 1°C (1.8°F) or more within one hour.
Make sure that the machine body is not directly subject to
the airflow from air conditioners or to direct sunlight.

• Ensure that the area is sufficiently ventilated
• Monitoring automatic operation : For safety purposes, make
sure an operator is always present during operation, even if
various safety devices are equipped, so that appropriate
actions can be taken
Safety measures
A dielectric fluid temperature detector, fluid level detector,
abnormal machining detector and automatic fire extinguisher,
standard equipment, and a flame-resistant metal hose is used.
Following legal ordinances, a tank which has passed a water
leakage test is used (for tank capacities less than 2,000 ,
tanks which have passed a voluntary water leakage test). Note
that the safety devices must be periodically inspected. Refer to
the instruction manual (safety manual) when using the EDM.
Automatic fire extinguisher
When heat is detected, a lightwater solution is automatically
sprayed to extinguish the fire.
Machining also stops
automatically at this time.
A separate 100VAC power
supply is required for the
automatic fire extinguisher.

Harmonic distortion in the power supply could affect machining
operation even when there is no voltage fluctuation. If such a problem
occurs, avoid use near equipment that generates harmonic distortion,
or provide measures such as a line filter.

Power Supply/Control
Specifications
EDM power supplies use the latest electronics technologies. Any large
fluctuation in the voltage can cause an EDM to deviate from its
optimum working conditions, and cause a reduction in efficiency.
Although fluctuations within approx. ±5% of the rated voltage will not
cause a problem, an automatic voltage regulator (AVR) should be used
to stabilize fluctuations of ±10% or more that last for a long period of
time (e.g., operating the EDM at 180V when rated voltage is 200V).

Product Introduction
To prevent malfunctions caused by the external noise from
control units, a filter is installed on the power supply input. By
grounding one end of this filter, an earth-leakage current of
approx. 30 to 40mA passes through this filter. If a highly
sensitive earth-leakage breaker (sensitivity current 30mA) is
installed, malfunctions could occur. Thus, a medium sensitivity
earth-leakage breaker (sensitivity current 100 to 200mA) is
recommended for the EDM. Class C grounding (grounding
resistance 10Ω or less) is recommended for the EDM. If Class
C grounding is provided, even if the sensitivity current is
200mA, the contact voltage will be 2V or less, and no
problems will occur in preventing electric shock (application of
tolerable contact current Class 2, 25V or less).
