Sparks fly at ETG with successful EDM eventRecognised as an industry leader in the EDM industry, the Wellesbourne-based Engineering Technology Group (ETG) recently hosted an EDM workshop for manufacturers to learn more about the technology.

ETG Ireland kicked off its Decade of Innovation workshop series last month with an EDM Applications Workshop on 23 January, which was hosted by Scott Elsmere, ETG’s product manager and renowned expert on Mitsubishi EDM and OPS-Ingersoll product lines. The day proved to be a big success with the large number of customers from across Ireland and Northern Ireland that took part.

Mr Elsmere covered a wide range of topics and backed them up with live demonstrations on a Mitsubishi MV1200R EDM machine, which was followed by an interactive Q&A session. From understanding the EDM process, and material types, improving part straightness, achieving better taper accuracy, to modifications for coated wires and key parameters in spark erosion — the event was an informative and action-packed day.

The EDM workshop provided an opportunity for toolmakers and manufacturers to network and share their knowledge, learn new tips and tricks and also gain a deeper understanding of ETG Ireland and the remarkably wide and diverse support services it offers. Many visitors said they would highly recommend the workshop to others.”

The Decade of Innovation series of workshops is set to continue with a Mastercam 2024 masterclass scheduled to take place next.
