As European correspondent Barbara Schulz wrote recently in her International Perspective column for November, “Although it is often declared dead, electrical discharge machining (EDM) clearly continues to live and has firmly established itself within manufacturers’ process chains.” She is quite right! For this week’s Technology Tuesday, I’ve put together a slideshow of EDM units in companies across the country that MoldMaking Technology has featured in case studies. Links to the relevant articles are listed in the captions. To see more content on EDM, check out the EDM Zone.

As many of you know, MoldMaking Technology’s case studies provide real-world success stories in which the “hero” is a product or service that helped a mold-industry user solve a critical problem or address an important challenge.

Have a success story that would make for a good case study that you would like to share? Reach out to Senior Editor Cyndi Kustush at ckustush@gardnerweb.com.
