UK — Crossen Engineering, a specialist in both toolmaking and parts production for injection moulding and pressing/stamping operations, has invested in a new Sodick AD35L spark-erosion machine from Sodi-Tech EDM. The machine, which arrived in December 2020, is now busy producing mould and press tools for a range of important medical projects.
When the old EDM equipment is not fast enough anymore, erosion is often the bottleneck in production. UK-based Neptune Engineering invested in a new die-sinking model that is able to work 50% faster than its predecessor.
You don’t often hear of someone claiming to have been surrounded by wire-cut EDM systems as a child. But Andreas Hornung, the managing director of Hornung, fondly remembers the machines of his father’s firm. Today, the company is equipped with several machines from Mitsubishi Electric.
UK – A precision subcontractor based in the UK specialising in multi-axis CNC milling, turning and EDM/ECM, has installed the latest Sodick AG600LH Premium, allowing the company to make vast savings in cycle times, from 14 hours to six hours in the case of cutting dies for the food industry.
