Current EDM’s EdmDrill RT3038 is a high-capacity machine designed for complex drilling of large and heavy parts common to the aerospace, automotive, power generation and cutting tool industries.

The EDM’s table strokes measure 30" in the X axis and 38" in the Y axis. The longer Y axis enables the use of large rotary tables that can be installed either horizontally or vertically to drill both flat and tall parts. The standard five-axis configuration uses the Nikken 5AX201 tilt/rotary table, which is installed at the front of the machine to ease part loading and unloading.
