When traditional machining methods reach their limit, electric discharge machining can be the answer. The EDM process allows for high accuracy and is applicable for any conductive material.
Germany is China's preferred technology partner in the manufacturing industry — a double-edged sword.
Workpieces made of electrically conductive materials are cut through by using an accelerated jet of hot plasma. It is an effective way to cut thick sheet metal.
In water jet cutting, workpieces are separated from each other by a high-pressure water jet. For this purpose, either specially treated water or an abrasive agent is used.
The Chinese import fair CIIE was held at the beginning of November. In 2020, the number of sales contracts and declarations of intent is expected to be 2.1 % higher than in the previous year.

This white paper presents a repeatable action plan to help machine shops evaluate and improve their manufacturing business while making sure their CAD/CAM software and machine tools are as efficient as possible.
The aerospace industry is subject to constant changes and developments. Advanced CAM software plays a crucial role in production efficiency and meeting requirements.
High-quality standardised components form a reliable basis for modern mouldmaking. Their consistent, continuous use makes it possible to achieve efficient processes.
The Cumsa Cycle counter displays on a 7-digit LCD screen, the total shots a mould produces. This unit also includes a partial counter which can be reset to zero at any time.
Maintenance requirements are reduced considerably when using NH/NS linear guides, as is the risk of expensive machine downtime due to premature failures.
