Sodick EDM offers healthy prognosis at Galway Tool & Mould

Galway Tool & Mould is using a new Sodick AG600L to go from strength-to-strength as a supplier of high quality injection moulds and micro-moulds, primarily to the medical device and pharmaceutical sectors.

“Despite being our first Sodick machine, it was so easy to use that we only needed one day of training to get familiar with the control,” says company owner, Padraig McFadden. “Furthermore, precision and surface finish are vital in the sectors we serve, even more so regarding micro-moulding. Some of our moulds produce components with walls as thin as 0.025 mm, with a shot weight of just 0.0005 g. This is why the ability to use wire diameters as small as 50µm on the new Sodick is so vital.”
