Beaumont Machine Offers Improved Response Time on Fast Hole EDM

Leading supplier of fast hole EDMs now offers added features of REALTIME

Beaumont Machine, located in Southwest Ohio, has updated its core fast-hole EDM machine, the FH40, with added features, including a faster response time. 

According to company President Ed Beaumont, “Fast-Hole EDM has changed in the past five years from primarily producing cooling holes to the needs on shapes and diffusers. The additional need for a lower recast and virtually no microcracking has become the standard in aerospace. As a result, Beaumont Machine has been working on answers for our customers, focusing on the ability to work REALTIME with our power supply to control interconnection and closed-loop features. Doing so aids in delivering a better overall quality for our process. Other features that improve with the REALTIME process such as micro-pulse technology, breakthrough hole-start technology and blind hole drilling all benefit from this better interconnection between the power supply and control.”
