Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a specific type of precision machining that’s used to create parts from a variety of metals. It’s referred to by many different names, but the two most common are: Conventional EDM Sinker EDM The technology creates the required shape by plunging or sinking...

In the world of manufacturing, precision engineering has been game-changing in regard to the accuracy and speed that components can be formed. The process, which is also sometimes referred to as bespoke engineering, is carried out by using one of two closely related programmes: CAD (computer...

As our world becomes ever more technologically advanced, so the requirements for skills are undergoing a dramatic shift. While there has historically been a fear within workforces that computers and robotics will reduce the need for humans to carry out tasks, the opposite is proving...

Innovation is a word that’s used a lot today. In manufacturing, the creation of a new idea, method or device—the very definition of the word—is heavily impacted by the processes we have available to us. Precision machining plays a pivotal role in today’s tech-heavy world. Before...

Manufacturing – and in particular, the manufacturing of prototypes - is in the midst of a revolution, courtesy of a new breed of technological marvels that go under the broad umbrella term of ‘advanced manufacturing’. A brief overview of what this means is processes that take...

The term, advanced manufacturing, is much used, but defining what this means isn’t as straightforward as one might think. As technology becomes ever more intertwined with virtually every element of production, the lines between old-school manufacturing and its cutting-edge alternative become further blurred. However, there are...

Precision engineering is often thought of as a process that’s solely utilised for specialist components in complex machinery. While this is one area where it’s used, the advanced manufacturing technique is also behind many of the items we all rely on every single day. From refrigerators to...

In its most basic form, the process...

The roadmap to successful product development is fraught with potential risk. However, the creation of high-quality prototypes needn’t be one of them. CNC machining brings a multitude of benefits to developers. Advanced technology has removed many of the historical stumbling blocks that have typically slowed progress...
