Outline

The MX Series is a wire-cut electrical discharge machining system used to manufacture molds. The series is the flagship EDM series for machining large, high-precision molds for vehicle drive motors that require more than one hundred hours of continuous automated operation, enabled by advanced technologies and craftsmanship. Mitsubishi Electric makes large-scale precision machining possible by combining the innovation of high-precision linear motors and IoT (for a clearer perspective on production) with the craftsmanship of fine hand-scraping of sliding surfaces and manual assembly. Boosts productivity through automated continuous operation on weekdays, at night, and on holidays, handling tasks that formerly required switching setups multiple times.
