Electro Discharge Machining Improvements

The best improvements a sub-contact machining company can make are obvious: Improved quality output, quicker and timely delivery and at a cheaper price. Di-Spark have achieved all of these improvements to all machining cells – including electro discharge machining by implementing a capacity utilisation and optimisation program spanning 2015. How did we achieve this? We listened to our customers, we referenced our AS9100 revision C certification guidelines constantly, we improved our QMS at each stage and we optimised supply chains via our knowledge gained from SC21 membership – the supply chain improvement program specific to aerospace, defence and space industries.

EDM Capacity Utilisation and Optimisation

Improvements were made to machining technologies, investing in the latest electro discharge machining technologies such as clean-cut wire EDM machines and automated spark EDM machines sporting robotic tool change and CNC multi-operation capability. We invested into new CMM technologies including large CMM capability and high-tech inspection facilities. We implemented ground-up staffing improvements to board level and brought in fresh talent via apprenticeships and close links with universities, and we optimised machining cells to achieve faster output and improved quality. In a nutshell, we didn’t leave a stone unturned.
