Current EDM has released the CT400 CNC hole drilling machine designed for toolroom and production drilling applications. The machine is available in three- and five-axis configurations for applications requiring the drilling of holes at multiple angles. It features a moving bridge designed for greater weight capacity and minimal machine footprint. High-quality slides and ball screws optimize positioning accuracy, says the company. The granite worktable is said to provide flatness and electrical insulation to improve machining performance.

The CT400 is available with the company’s AEC24 automatic electrode changer for production drilling applications.
