Methods Machine Tools Inc. has recently partnered with Ocean Technologies Ltd. Inc. to offer the company’s EDM Drills throughout the United States and Canada including Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

Specializing in Small Hole EDM Drilling, Ocean Technologies excels at applications ranging from simple wire start holes to full five-axis EDM drilling applications used in the aerospace and energy industries. Known for its high-speed and low-wear burning technology, Ocean has earned a reputation for high-quality, competitively-priced EDM drilling products, Methods says. 

“We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Ocean Technologies”, says Steve Raucci, EDM Product Manager, Methods Machine Tools, Inc. “The Ocean EDM drills broaden our EDM portfolio and are an excellent complement to our line of leading Wire EDM machines.”

“Due to Methods’ extensive EDM technology expertise, existing customer base and distribution depth, teaming up with Methods is a natural fit,” says Sunny Liao, owner of Ocean Technologies. 

The full line of Ocean models ranges from easy-to-use manual machines to fully programmable five-axis machines capable of drilling complex parts. Ocean’s EDM drills are equipped with breakthrough detection technology as well as an HP1+ power supply for significantly reduced wear and shorter burn times and reduced energy consumption. The capabilities of Ocean machines include drilling fine holes from 0.004" to 0.25", even in spherical and curved workpieces, on materials such as hard alloy steels or powdered metals, the company says.
