GF Machining Solutions Wire EDMs give UK presswork specialist a competitive edge
Switzerland – Brandauer, a leading international precision contract presswork and stampings specialist, has recently commissioned two wire EDM machines from GF Machining Solutions.
The machines, both Agie Charmilles CUT 3000 models, were installed at the company’s Birmingham facility, in a specially-constructed, thermally-controlled EDM manufacturing cell where they sit alongside a number of previously-acquired EDM spark erosion and hole-drill machines, GF said.
It added that the new cell was a real centrepiece for the company. According to Brandauer the wire capability (the machines can handle different diameter wires from 0.05 to 0.3 mm), and the automatic wire change feature provide the company with improved manufacturing flexibility and a more reliable manufacturing process. The investment has also enabled Brandauer to strengthen its position as a manufacturer of complex, highly-specialised EDM machined parts, GF said.
