ETG Creates a Spark of Interest With an EDM Event


Recognised as an industry leader in the EDM industry, the Engineering Technology Group (ETG) recently hosted an EDM workshop for manufacturers with a keen interest in the technology.

ETG Ireland kicked off their ‘Decade of Innovation’ workshop series last month with an EDM Applications workshop on the 23rd of January, which was hosted by Scott Elsmere, ETG’s Product Manager and renowned expert on Mitsubishi EDM and OPS-Ingersoll product lines. The day was a huge success with a great turnout of customers from across Ireland and Northern Ireland. Scott covered a range of topics and this was supported by 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, 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 from across the country 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. Many attendees said they would highly recommend the workshop to others. One attendee said: “I have been EDM wiring for over 20 years, and I have learned new things at the workshop that I can take back to the workplace.”
