  • Patent number: 10543546
    Abstract: In a wire electric discharge machine, time from application of a voltage to a machining gap between a workpiece and a wire electrode until occurrence of electric discharge is measured as a discharge delay time, and the measured discharge delay time is integrated over a predetermined measurement period to calculate a discharge delay integrated time. Further, the number of times of the voltage application in the measurement period is counted. An average discharge delay time per voltage application in the measurement period is calculated from the discharge delay integrated time and the number of times of voltage application. The movement of the wire electrode with respect to the workpiece is controlled on the basis of the average discharge delay time.

  • Patent number: 10493547
    Abstract: Whether or not an inter-electrode voltage exceeds a voltage threshold is determined after a predetermined inter-electrode state determination period has passed since application of an induction voltage (inter-electrode voltage) to an inter-electrode gap. Thus, an inter-electrode gap amount between a wire electrode and a work is estimated. A pause time during which electrical discharge is not performed is changed according to an estimation result of the inter-electrode gap amount.
