Supporting the top tier

Uploaded 05 Jun @ 18:47pm

From its impressive facilities in Dudley, Electro-Discharge provides a specialist subcontract CNC wire and spark erosion service to a diverse engineering customer base. With industry leading quality accreditations and a plant capacity list that features over 30 wire and spark erosion machines. These include the latest generation Excetek CNC wire cut machines supplied by exclusive UK agent, Warwick Machine Tools, installed to operate automatically at speed, to close tolerances in a ‘lights out’ environment.

Around 90 per cent of the company’s business is aerospace and the 27 highly skilled staff on the shopfloor support the high variety, tight tolerance components that Electro-Discharge’s customers entrust the company to deliver to stringent deadlines. A demand for additional capacity resulted in a thorough search of the EDM market.

Says General Manager Rupin Vadera: “Although we were aware of the Excetek range we didn’t fully appreciate the capability and functionality offered. We arranged a demonstration at Warwick Machine Tools’ showroom near Kenilworth and everyone was impressed with both the build quality and performance. The price-to-performance ratio is exceptional.”
To meet the component sizes and capacity forecast Electro-Discharge ordered two Excetek V850G CNC wire EDM machines. The large capacity 1,000 litre submerged tank of the V850G is able to take workpieces weighing up to 1,100 kg and measuring up to 1,100 x 850 x 345 mm.

Rupin Vadera says: “While we were waiting for delivery and installation, WMT provided us with a showroom demonstration machine on loan so that we could keep up with the initial workload that our customers had placed on us. This allowed us to maintain our on time delivery record with our customers. I know the machines are running well as they are often praised during our management meetings.”
