Workholding System for One-Offs Decreases Setup Times
The clamping elements of Erowa’s CleverClamp system are specifically designed for the manufacture of one-off and small-batch parts.
EDM Cell Cuts Lead Time in Half, Improves Quality
Sodick's AG60L sinker EDM and an Erowa Robot Compact helped Ford Tool and Machining LLC cut lead time in half when it needed to reduce downtime and increase repeatability.
Sealing System Protects Chucks from Debris
Erowa’s ITS 50 Holder C protects chucks against copper chips, graphite dust or fine chips from high-speed cutting during manufacturing processes.
Sealed Holder Protects Chucks from Debris
Erowa will present its ITS 50 Holder C, designed to protect chucks against contamination such as copper chips, graphite dust or fine HSC chips during manufacturing processes.

A Big-Picture View of Micromachining
Matrix Tooling makes injection molds for components that have features you cannot see.
Cell Controller Boosts Production Flexibility
By serving as the “brains” of a cell consisting of two machining centers and a work delivery system, cell control software from Erowa helps this manufacturer run lights-out 24/7 and achieve 90-percent spindle utilization.
Beyond Milling or Grinding
Ultrasonic machining opens new possibilities for NASA engineers using previously unmachinable materials.
How Do You Equip a Startup Micromachining Shop?
A response to a reader’s question includes a checklist for launching a small shop focused on micromachining.
Fully Automatic Manufacturing Cell
Erowa Technology offers its Robot Dynamic modular system, which can be extended in all directions at any time.
Find Your Speed Outside of Machining
This short-lead-time mold shop achieves its most significant time savings by looking outside the machining cycle. However, one of those elements outside the cycle—palletized setup—ultimately led to cycle time savings via five-axis machining.

Die Tech & Engineering describes how palletization and five-axis machining work together to deliver efficiency.
Too Small To Touch
Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
A Micro Machine Design
This machine has no toolholders and no tombstone—but there is a camera. Here are details of a machining center designed for micromachining.
HSM Technology Enables Mold Maker To Boost Productivity
Founded in 1959, Advance Mold and Manufacturing, Inc. (AM&M) is located in a temperature-controlled production facility in Manchester, Connecticut. The 30,000-square-foot building also houses Vision Technical Molding (VTM), a custom molding operation specializing in complex, tight-tolerance medical products. VTM also QC-samples AM&M's molds. Although the two sides are separate businesses, they are also partners, connected within the same building. AM&M occupies 18,000 square feet of the building and employs 65 people working two shifts, 6 days per week.
On The Path To Automation
Implementing an integrated tooling system proved to be this mold shop's first step toward automated operation of its electrical discharge machines and graphite mills. Today, the shop's robotic cells can run around the clock in an unattended mode.
The EROWA Robot Dynamic was designed to be expandable to suit your needs. The transfer unit can stand on the floor next to one machine or several machines or placed on a rail to serve up to 8 machines. In addition, the Robot Dynamic has overcome the issue of automating machines that can only be loaded from the front with our unique D axis. Ideal for small and large workpieces, with a lifting capacity of up to 550lbs.Click on the link below the picture for more details or call your local EROWA representative.
FTool - Precision Tooling on a Budget
We proudly respresent the Swiss made FTool product line for the North American continent. The product line consists of WEDM, EDM and machining precision work holding. Budgets are tight these days and FTool can be an economical solution for your work holding needs. Click on the link below the picture for more details on the WEDM kit and other FTool products.
