We use the Thermo SD wire from Sodick. Its great wire. We have no issues with threading tall parts and start holes down to .020" dia. It can handle up to 25 deg taper. Its clean with no zinc residue and we can really bump up the power with it. We have noticed about a 20-25% increase on burn...
Are you doing a taper cut or 4 axis cut? G140 cancels 4 axis work at the end of a cut. G50 will cancel a taper cut.

Six operators for one machine???
Most of the setting you mentioned really shouldn't even be played around with. Unless you have a steep 4 axis or tapered part wire tension shouldn't be adjusted. About the only thing an operator should mess with is EPA. All other settings are done in the...
It will take a DXF file or an ISO file. Go to your easy drill page ( top right icon with the hand ). Next go to pattern page on the right. On your pattern page click the icon under point to open ac cam. Once there open file from usb. Click the drill icon to make all your power settings and depths.
These wire choppers seem to have a mind of their own. Our AG has 28000 hours on it and still using the same cutters. The choppers don't last long at all on our ALN's. We tried wiring out our own but just didn't work. They just crimped the wire. Needless to say, our wire choppers for the ALN's...
When we purchased the machine we were told 6-8 week delivery.
Their reason is the machine is still in transit from Europe.
Marcus Machinery sold us the machine.
This machine is replacing an old machine. Fortunately the old machine is still in service and operational.
As jz said make sure the larger opening is at the top. These need to be rotated 90 deg every 500 hours and replaced every 2000. Your thread pipe may be slightly bent as well causing the wire to rub the guide during threading. Also, make sure your heads haven't moved. Hold an indicator on your...
