The UPN-01 represents the next leap forward in technology for ultra-precision machining and surface finish capability of small/fine wire operations. The machine features a unique horizontal wire drive system layout that enhances wire threading performance, and is capable of reliably threading start holes as small as 30µm diameter, and can operate with wire sizes ranging from 0.100mm down to 15µm in diameter.
The UPN-01 is capable of achieving sub-micron level accuracy, which is made possible using the machines Pneumatic Static Pressure Guideways and Linear Motor motion technology. These two advanced motion control systems are combined to minimize mechanical friction and mechanical inertia to ensure consistent ultra-precision increment movements. The UPN-01 uses a 0.01µm or 10 nanometer scale feedback system, which provides a minimum programmable increment of 0.1µm that is capable of achieving a mechanical movement roundness of 0.2µm.
