The high precision of the new machines from the Spanish company are said to enable the most demanding and complex parts to be produced. These range from diesel fuel injectors in the automotive industry to industrial turbine blades and guide vanes in the aeronautical industry. According to the exhibitors, the outstanding merits of their machines include the low cost of maintenance, the wide range of bore shapes that can be produced, whether conical, semi-conical or irregular, and the programmable head to create the desired conicity without adjustments or alignments. The flexible and robust Microhole and Fasthole machines can be customized and can also include numerous automation options such as an automatic test flow, adaptive control, laser markers, vision systems and dielectric systems. In order to complement their portfolio in this machine segment, the manufacturers have recently acquired 30 percent of the AAEDM Corporation, the US-based specialists who can reportedly draw upon over 20 years of experience in Microhole and Fasthole EDM solutions.
