Ed Beaumont has returned as president of Beaumont Machine, a manufacturer of EDMs and EDM consumables, as the company relocates to a new facility in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. 

“We needed a fresh start and we were committed to making it happen on every level, from our physical location to the machine offerings to the markets served and more,” says Mr. Beaumont. 

He goes on: “I started the company over 25 years ago, had success in the aerospace industry here in Cincinnati and elsewhere. After five years of semi-retirement, I returned to run the company with three goals in mind. I wanted to relocate the business to a larger facility; expand the machine line to offer more companies the benefits of our unique designs; and lastly, grow our consumables business, a key to long-term relationships with EDM customers.”

The company reports that it has met these goals, having expanded into new markets including semiconductor materials processing and land-based power generation, particularly turbine blades. The consumable sales have also ramped up, Beaumont having secured reliable partners and having the warehouse capacity to carry expanded inventories. 

Commenting on the goal of expanding the EDM line, Mr. Beaumont says that “Though Beaumont machines are available with FANUC or Siemens CNCs, our newest platform with Siemens allows us to create even more shapes with Realtime EDM.  We bring them some pretty complex specs and they can always meet the challenges.”

The company provides customers with fixture design, training, part programming assistance, engineering, turnkeys and vision system integration services.
