Italian Style

Italian Style

EMO 2019 Hannover
Also in this edition E.cut™ was present together with Baoma.
In addition to numerous patents, 3 Euro patents make E.cut™ a machine different from the original.
Different, to meet the needs of the European mechanical industry.
Different in the components installed, all strictly available in Europe, and of primary world brands.
Different in the realization of the mechanical part, with materials and parts of the highest quality.
Different in the electrical and electronic part, entirely made in the same production area.
Different in Europe for the mode ‘of assistance’ before and after sales that ensure the functionality’ over time.
Service interventions in a very short time on site, and a connection through tele assistance immediate and constant.

The largest mechanical company in the world, having verified the characteristics and capabilities of E.cut™, installed the first machine for one of its Italian plants in 2014, followed a few months later by a second one.
Having established the reliability of the plants and the readiness of the Genesi after-sales service, after a few years other machines were purchased to be included in very important production lines.
The latest Ecut™ has been included in a futuristic Additive Manufacturing department, a sector in which E.cut™ is the Italian leader.

RELIABILITY
In the country of origin of these machines, after two or three years of work are returned to the manufacturer who at little expense, resets them (!). Or they are thrown away!
Obviously this is not the custom in Europe.
The costs would be too high, so a machine must guarantee its functionality over time.
The following images concern one of the first machines sold in Italy. A few simple failures, which occurred as soon as purchased and ‘was promptly fixed, but after almost 12 years, disappeared the manufacturer, and no longer’ available important electronic parts, it seemed time to throw it away.
The deep knowledge acquired by Genesi in these years, has allowed to adapt new components to the old electronics, and, with a minimum expense to have the machine running perfectly.

The reliability, but much more important, the precision and accuracy of the workings have brought the spread in Italy to well over 100 machines installed.
In many cases the first machine was followed by others. From the small to the big company, the cheapness of working with E.cut has allowed considerable savings. Very often work cycles have been substantially revolutionized. In the following images, one of the most important Italian gear manufacturers has acquired two plants a few months later.
Purchased to cut keyways on large gears, once the precision and ease with which this precision is obtained had been measured, it was quickly passed to much more demanding and delicate internal gears.

E.cut™ is only Genesi.  Not E.cut™ ?  Not the same !

In the sunlight

Okay, it’s not always okay… It can happen! The important thing is that there is someone who can put things right. Whether it’s a new machine or a machine from ten years ago!

In the Genesi group we have created, for more than a decade, a structure that deals exclusively with these machines.
We believed it, despite the irony and sarcasm of those who sold conventional wire erosion.
We believed it and put our faces on it. Immediately, openly… in the sunlight.
We created a website exclusively for these machines. In the site there are all the information, the news, … there are our faces … in the sunlight.
There is the manufacturer’s description, and the link to his site, we clearly say who, where and how they are built… in the sunlight.
Every now and then some of the ironic and sarcastic people try to sell  machines similar to E.cut… not in sunlight.
They do not appear on their sites, if they appear you do not know where they come from, sometimes there are unreal images, sometimes there is generic and inaccurate information!

Selling other things, dealing with other things, they propose similar machines, often mimicking the name E.cut. Every now and then they change supplier, and… often disappear…

.
Says Mr. Franco, after years of using E.cut™:

“There are those who work in the twilight and those in the light of the sun
Clarity, and a lot of experience make E.cut™ a winning machine suitable for all processes… its staff is always available and highly professional and guarantees quiet sleep to all its customers”.

He inspired us to write this new article!

They were among the first in 2005 to buy similar machines. But after a few years those who had supplied it disappeared!
When something started not to work, they got by for a while, but in the end they threw in the towel, or, worse, they threw in the machines. They couldn’t find the spare parts, especially the electrical ones and the cheap ones, installed by the Chinese manufacturer, in the meantime disappeared!
In 2019 they discovered Genesis, with its E.cut™.
They verified that the machines sold by Genesi arrive with standard components available on the European market. They have investigated at some customers to know the reliability of the assistance provided. They tested the machine at the Test&Lab in Genesis.

And they bought an E.cut™ !

E.cut™ is just Genesi, if it’s not E.cut™ it’s not the same thing!

With Ecut, yes!


Large dimensions

On this large workpiece (over 2500 Kg.) and a cantilevered part of over 1000 mm, the internal toothing must be carried out. The execution by a third party, in addition to the considerable cost required by those who have a suitable hobbing machine, collided with the delivery time. The alternative could have been wire erosion, but even so the hourly costs of such a machine are prohibitive, not to mention delivery times.
Machining with an Ecut 63D has cost incredibly less than wire erosion, and even less than the hobbing machine.
The absence of the immersion tank allows the positioning of pieces with dimensions even far exceeding the table. The span between the heads of 500 mm, (optional up to 800 mm), allows you to place and cut pieces of high thickness.
The precision achievable, within 0,015 mm, ( +/- o,oo75 mm ), with roughness even lower than 1 Ra; the perfect geometry of the machined parts, without any barrel effect even at high thicknesses and with high removal speed, makes Ecut more and more widespread in gear manufacturing companies.

Aeronautics – Gas&Oil – Medical – Automotive racing

The use of increasingly sophisticated metal materials is increasingly widespread in high-tech sectors. More and more complex shapes for light and very resistant pieces are designed considering the great possibilities of multi-axis machine tools.
However, there are some problems:
The materials are often hard or bonded, so they are very difficult to remove from the tool.
More and more sophisticated machines are expensive, and… delicate.
Wire erosion is one of the methods to remove as much material as possible, and leave a minimum amount of chips to finish.
But wire erosion costs money!
E.cut™, has some great advantages over conventional erosion:
1) A 10 to 20 times lower operating cost.
2) The lack of a tank in which pieces and clamping tools have to be placed. This implies the possibility of working in a pendulum, loading one piece while the other is cutting, or the adoption of rotary tables, or dividers ….
3) Large cutting thicknesses even for the smallest (and least expensive) machines, with the possibility to cut more overlapping pieces and reduce the time of loading and unloading pieces.

Specimens of materials resistance

Providing certification of used materials is becoming increasingly important. For each casting, for each forged, for each semi-finished product from which a piece is obtained, it is increasingly necessary to provide the results of tensile tests, resilience, etc..
But the samples must be obtained!
Sawing, cutting, milling, turning… and at the end maybe the material has been “stressed”, and the test is no longer conclusive.
The cost then splashes, especially if it is difficult materials, (titanium, inconel, stainless steel, etc..).
Ecut™ is the ideal solution.
At an incredibly low cost you get the finished or semi-finished specimens, with centesimal precision, without stressing the material, and starting from any blank, casting, plate, laminate or forged.
The extreme simplicity of the Ecut™ control system and the possibility of archiving an infinite number of programs for each size or material give the possibility to employ poorly qualified personnel.
