EDM For Semiconductor Industry
Beaumont Machine’s six-axis FH30 EDM features 30" × 16" × 22" of X-, Y- and Z-axis travel; spindle speeds ranging to 3,000 rpm; and rapid speeds ranging to 300 ipm. The machine can accommodate a maximum workpiece weight of 800 lbs.
Micropulse Technology Comes To Fast-Hole EDM
Holes in turbine blades are critical because the internal cooling airflow provided by these holes prevents the parts from overheating during operation. One of the most promising technologies for making these holes is fast-hole electrical discharge machining (EDM).
Aerospace Hole Making Takes Shape
The demand for fast hole making will intensify as more fuel-efficient jet engines are introduced. Electrical discharge machining is emerging as the answer.
