    Agie Charmilles 440cc vs Mitsubishi FA20 Wire EDM

    Hello,

    I am about to buy an wire edm machine, but I am between two options: Agie Charmilles 440cc (2004) and Mitsubishi FA20 (2000). They both met my needs and I can afford both, the only thing in question here is if they are going to last and are they going to perform properly. I've been searching here and in the practicalmachinist forum for threads where theses machines have failed or broken down and I found more results with the FA20. This might be due to its popularity, but I will love to hear any extra inputs on these machines if possible. I deeply appreciate any help anyone can give me on the topic.

    Thanks for your time.

    You will pay a very high dollar for consumables and service on the Agie.
