Anotronic River 3 EDM drilling machine, new to the UK
The new River 3 EDM Drilling line that is now available from Anotronic is an entry level line of machines for drilling holes from 0.2mm to 3mm diameter.
Whilst not a full CNC machine, the control unit on the River 3 has parameters for drilling materials from steel through to carbide from 0.2mm to 3mm. This simple to use system can be taught to company employees within a matter of hours due to its intuitive nature.
The River 3 has a table travel of 300 by 200mm in X and Y axes with a full table dimension of 350mm by 250mm. The travel in Z-axis and W-axis is 350 and 200mm respectively. This allows for a maximum workpiece height of 180mm.
The new River 3 has a 25amp generator that provides ample power levels for efficient and speedy hole production with a power capacity of 3.8KVA. All this is built into a compact package that is 600kg in weight with a footprint of 1100 by 1100 by 2000mm. This makes the River 3 small enough to fit onto a pallet and transport freely around the workshop to a desired location.
