GF Machining Solutions (Lincolnshire, Illinois) recently named three new distributors to serve customers in the Northwest and Western United States. Ellison Technologies is serving GF Machining Solutions customers in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. D&R Machinery is covering Arizona, and the current territory for Hartwig Inc. has been expanded to serve those customers in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

Customers will benefit from easier access to demonstration centers and larger sales and support teams that can work in conjunction with GF Machining Solutions to provide timely front-line service and application support on equipment.

“These distributors have set the benchmark in offering the highest level of service and support to their customers,” explains Scott Fosdick, president of GF Machining Solutions.

The new technologies available to these distributors through their partnerships with GF Machining Solutions include EDM, milling and laser texturing. With access to such technologies, the distributors will be able to provide solutions that address specialized needs of all customers in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, die/mold and other industries.


  • Exploring Niches With New EDM Technologies

    A shop specializing in wire EDM for large mold components now offers EDM “turning” of small, intricate parts. Despite the potential risks involved in early adoption of new technologies, the shop believes this practice gives it a leg-up on the competition and lets it gain experience with alternative machining techniques before offering them to customers.

  • The Hidden Cost Of EDM Wire Consumption

    Excessive wire consumption on a wire electrical discharge machine is costly. Technology that allows slower unspooling speeds without compromising results appears to be the answer.

  • Wire EDM with a Twist

    Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.
