Lincolnshire, IL – GF Machining Solutions will unveil four new products for the first time in North America at its 2019 GF Solutions Days: the AgieCharmilles CUT C 350; the Microlution ML-10 and MLTC; and the DMP Flex 350. The two-day event will occur at two locations. On Thursday, June 27th, the company’s U.S. Headquarters in Lincolnshire, Illinois, will feature machine demonstrations, presentations and seminars. The event moves to GF Machining Solutions’ newly expanded Microlution production facility in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, June 28th for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, facility tour and technical discussions.
The new AgieCharmilles CUT C 350 offers GF Machining Solutions’ quality for the lowest operating costs. According to the company, with a $99,000 starting price point, the machine is not only cost-effective, but also provides optimized cutting speed and reliable accuracy, while the equipped AC CUT HMI 2 system makes for easy programming through efficient EDM expert modules.
Created in collaboration with 3D Systems, the DMP Flex 350 builds upon the DMP Factory 500, which GF Machining Solutions introduced to U.S. audiences at IMTS 2018. Featuring a 10.82″ x 10.82″ x 14.96″ working area, as well as 3D Systems’ additive manufacturing (AM) software, 3DXpert, the DMP Flex 350 is made to handle R&D projects and production alike. GF Machining Solutions will also give a sneak peek of the upcoming AgieCharmilles CUT AM 500 machine for the removal of build plates for additive manufacturing.
Microlution’s new ML-10 builds upon the ML-5. A solution for industries ranging from automotive to medical, the ML-10 extends GF Machining Solutions’ range to ensure all manufacturers have the machines they need to succeed, the company says. For tube-cutting applications, the company will also be introducing its MLTC model, a laser that provides medical-industry manufacturers with precise holemaking in metal and polymer tubes.
In addition to highlighting the company’s new machines, Solutions Days will include a trip to the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Microlution facility. Along with the introduction of new products – and lunch in the new showroom – participants will have the chance to receive tours of the facility; see demonstrations of Microlution’s ML-5, ML-10, MLDS and MLTC; and hear how other Microlution customers have deployed the technology successfully.
The event will offer presentations by GF Machining Solutions experts, including seminars on milling, additive manufacturing and 3DXpert, wire/consumables, System 3R automation, laser micromachining and laser texturing.
New machines at the event will be accompanied by others from GF Machining Solutions, including the Mikron HSM 200 U LP, MILL P 500 U and MILL P 900; the AgieCharmilles FORM P 350 with System 3R Transformer, DRILL 20 and CUT P 550; and the AgieCharmilles LASER P 400 U fs, LASER S 1000, Microlution ML-5 and MLDS.
