Global EDM is Growing

Global EDM announced the sale of its consumables division to SST (Makino’s consumables group) earlier this year allowing the company to focus exclusively on machinery. The sale has allowed the company to focus on an industry-best service, expanding its product range, and delivering the absolute most competitive pricing.

Each and every machine sale is now backed with a fully trained staff of US based Service Technicians and an always-stocked parts department. Keeping both technicians and parts within the US has allowed Global to deliver much faster turnarounds for maintenance and installation over international competitors. With the sale of each machine, Global Applications Engineers will fully train new operators. Barry Ramsay, VP of Global EDM, said, “While we will always deliver uninterrupted, timely service, our goal is to do what our competitors can’t: teach you how to make the most of your EDM machinery.”

To that end, beginning with its wire machines, all Global EDM machinery will include a library of E-Learning Tools that will educate an operator in the basics and essentials of properly operating their machines.

Global EDM is also proud to announce brand new machining solutions, including:

The Excetek VG Plus Series:  This new line of wire machines broadens the available X axes to include a range from 15.75 to 47 inches and the Z axes from 8.6 to 39.5 inches. The VG Plus series also features a new digital power manager to improve cutting accuracy and surface finish.

The R2000:  Specifically designed for the Aerospace Industry, this wire EDM cuts shapes from rings with a diameter of up to 86.7 inches with exceptional accuracy.

The FH23:  The nation’s broadest range of EDM drills, at Global EDM, is growing again with the new five foot wide Beaumont FH23 ATC, supplied with shaped-hole technology. As always, all Beaumont EDM drills are fully customizable to produce a machine to meet the biggest or smallest needs.

Since the sale, Global EDM has been able to focus in on what it has always done best: superior service, a lineup of machines for every job and unbeatable pricing.

Global EDM introduces an effective training method to train and retain good operators.

For a moment, place yourself in another man’s shoes (unless you find the following to be the shoes you wear already!): You’ve just gone through a three day training to learn how to use a new EDM machine and now you must produce parts. You know that the training was good and exhaustive but… man, now you have to make something with this thing! Within tolerance!

Learning a new skill can be difficult anytime but when you add in the risk of someone’s livelihood, the pressure can be too great for a one time training to achieve the results a company needs for success. The best training results usually come from a source of constant tutoring. This is where Global EDM’s E-Learning fills the training gap.

Global EDM’s E-Learning is educational software loaded on Global EDM machinery that teaches an operator how to use the machine point by point. It effectively turns your EDM machinery into its own classroom, allowing the operator to review information as often as needed. This is information that is typically forgotten after a traditional classroom setting.

Even with the best classroom training, it will take the typical operator one whole year of using a machine before he or she will be able to use it well. The importance and advantage of the E-Learning model is apparent because it can accurately and effectively train and help retain good workers. When operators are confident in their ability to use their machinery, and in their ability to continue learning, it will quickly translate to an increase in ROI.
