Aerospace EDM shop opts for Sodick again

Coventry-based Hi-Tech Aerospace Components has once again turned to Sodi-Tech for its latest wire machine, an AG600L Premium. The company’s eighth Sodick wire EDM, the new machine’s high specification and capability is allowing it to complete the work previously undertaken by two older models, and much more besides.

“We’re expanding the company and we needed more capacity,” says co-director Bob Duffin. “We took the option to replace two older machines as this would give us more space. However, while that means we are now one machine down, the new Sodick AG600L Premium soon swallowed up the work of the other two machines, and plenty more besides.”

Typical applications at Hi-Tech include high volume small holes down to 0.15 mm diameter, strip seal slots, swirler plates and profiles.
