Tucker, GA (PRWEB) November 17, 2009 -- A proprietary new technology developed by Atlanta EDM & Machine Co. has successfully blended custom EDM machining and lights-out automation for greater speed and accuracy for medical industry components. The company's technologies and extensive automation yield some of the fastest speeds in the business while still maintaining accuracies paramount to precision medical or aerospace components.

Technologies that tweak the proper voltages like on and off times are critical to optimized performance. CEO Bill McKlveen, an electrical engineer with a background in digital design and power said, “ The out of the box technologies are fine for some basic cuts, but when seconds count, being able to rely on our modifications of the spark technology allow us to maximize performance and pass along speed and ultimately savings to our customers.”

Many of the problems with production electrical discharge machining (EDM) involve bores and net geometry that need to be cut over tall blanks. Even if the resulting parts are thin, the economy of scale dictates a stacking of thin parts for cost efficiency. Many times the EDM will cut parts stacked on top of each other as high as 50 tall. Cutting 50 high at one time is efficient, but it can cause problems like tapers of holes or inaccurate profiles. Atlanta EDM’s proprietary technology has pushed the limit of the machines with break-neck speed while yielding accurate and consistent parts over a high-production volume. These thin, flat parts, which require tolerances as fine as .0002”, are routinely grouped and cut over these tall spans of material yielding accurate and cost effective parts.

Fast settings that maintain accuracy is only one of the EDM machining components used in making medical components; the other is an extensive investment in the automation tooling and management software that maximizes use of all the electrical discharge machining capital investments. As McKlveen said, “it does not make a lot of sense to put expensive equipment on the floor and not have it running every minute possible, lowering our burden rate and making our customers ultimately more competitive in the medical environment.

Consistency, accuracy and speed are the three parameters the company measures and evaluates in their ISO9001 quality program. Using the right blend of technology and automation, Atlanta EDM provides the value added EDM machining services that are required in the medical industry.
