1 X Fanuc Robocut alpha-1C with large capacity work tank, Submerged, Autowire, (24 hour operation)
Automatic Wire Feed Erosion (x500mm y370mm z300mm)

Spark Eroding:

Fuzzy logic control giving optimum machine parameter setting and repeatable cutting conditions.
Reduced electrode wear.
Single or multi step functions to suit all applications.
5 optional cutting modes to suit finish/application/machining time.
Pendant control to aid workpiece/electrode setting.


1 x Spark Eroding: Joemers EDM machine (JM322 +AZ50), x300mm y200mm z200mm

EDM Drilling:

Hole Burning: EDM Hole Drilling (0.3mm dia to 3.0mm dia)

Component size: x: 300mm, y: 300mm z: 250mm.

We are capable of EDM hole drilling from 0.3mmØ to 3.0mmØ through materials such as hardened steel up to 250mm thick. EDM drilling is useful for small applications such as nozzles, drilling into curved surfaces, as starter holes for wire erosion, it can also drill through any material even carbides and wont risk damage from broken drill bits.

CNC Machining:

1 x Hurco VM2 (x1000mm y470mm z470mm)

40 taper, 8000 RPM spindle

UltiMax control and software tools

16-station, automatic, swing-arm tool changer

Ideally suited for low to medium volume work, the our Hurco CNC machining centre can undertake milling of components upto 1m wide. As well as billet machining we also undertake the machining of aluminium & bronze castings as well as certain plastics. The CNC mill is network attached which means that off line programming can be sent direct from the CAD department.
