CEI is pleased to announce the addition of two new state-of-the-art Fanuc a-0iD Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) machines purchased from Methods Machine Tools in Sudbury, MA. This increases their Wire EDM department to a total of 11 centers in operation.
"After several months of visiting other area manufacturers and reviewing alternate machines tools, I felt the new FANUC a-0iD machines would be the "Swiss Army knife" of machines," states Ron Hansen Jr, President of Component Engineers Inc. "We needed a machine tool that would be a competent production machine for our tube fabrication division and service the needs of our in-house R&D and Tool & Die divisions. Since installation, the impact on our company's throughput has been truly overwhelming," explains Hansen.
The improved software, touch screen ability, integrated corner control, and faster threading are just some of the new capabilities responsible for the increased throughput and improved precision, which combined with the already present technologies and experienced team of Wire EDM operators, makes CEI a contract manufacturing leader for any Wire EDM challenge.
