Electronic component manufacturers achieve the productivity and part quality essential to staying on pace with increased consumer uptake of electronics with GF Machining Solutions’ new AgieCharmilles FORM S 350 die-sinking electrical discharge machining (EDM) solution.
Situated in the small town of Cisano Bergamasco in Italy’s Bergamo province, ALDEGHI S.r.l (a division of M.S.Ambrogio Group) is surrounded by history, from the Colleoni Chapel—a Renaissance jewel in Bergamo’s crown—to the majestic Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the upper city. Founded by Aldeghi’s father, Pietro Aldeghi, in 1983 in roughly 200-square-meter workshop, today’s ALDEGHI S.r.l. encompasses 2,000 square meters, including 1,600 square meters of covered and thermostabilized with air conditioning and is bound full speed for the future.
GF Machining Solutions has long been a major actor in plastic injection by providing market players with high-performance machine tools. Customers trust their solutions to manufacture the most complex molds and inserts. But now GF goes further by incorporating Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology to its portfolio.
Developing more sustainable machine tools is just one facet of GF Machining Solutions’ membership in the European Association of Machine Tool Industries (CECIMO) Blue Competence Machine Tool sustainability initiative. The GF Division develops smart, complete solutions to drive customers’ energy and resource efficiency and—ultimately—their profitability across a wide range of applications and market segments.
GF Machining Solutions will demonstrate several milling and EDM systems designed for high performance and productivity in medical machining applications at MD&M 2017 on February 7 – 9 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California. Visitors to the company’s booth 3501 will experience the Mikron HSM 200U LP (linear performance) milling machine, the CUT E350 wire EDM, and several new micro-machining products that incorporate milling and laser technologies.
GF Machining Solutions continues to provide value and efficiency with its MIKRON HEM 500U milling machine as part of an automated multi-machine manufacturing cell capable of full lights-out operation. The machine’s special rotary tilting table makes it possible for manufacturers focused on accurate and reliable parts production to cost effectively achieve high-performance 5-axis machining for single-setup part processing.
One year ago, GF Machining Solutions signed a strategic partnership with global Additive Manufacturing (AM) leader EOS, headquartered in Krailling, Germany. The partnership demonstrates the companies’ commitment to advancing AM as a leading technology and working together to ensure its seamless integration into the conven-tional manufacturing chain.
