Educational presentations are scheduled to cover a variety of manufacturing issues ranging from five-axis machining techniques to automation systems and advanced EDM control.


  • How To Handle Tall Wire EDM Work

    Modular workpiece fixturing plays a vital role in this shop’s quest to win larger, more difficult wire EDM jobs.

  • 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.

  • Wire EDM In The Extreme

    Cutting metal with an energized strand of wire is still one of the most dynamic frontiers in metalworking, and this shop goes to extremes to keep up with the latest advances. It has even developed some of its own.
