Beaumont Machine FH40

Beaumont Machine has updated its core fast-hole FH40 EDM with added features, including a faster response time. According to the company, fast-hole EDM requirements in aerospace include a lower recast and virtually no microcracking. As a result, the FH40’s power supply and control have been engineered for faster response time, benefiting micro-pulse, breakthrough hole-start and blind-hole drilling. 

Additional features of the FH40 include offsite diagnostics via analog or digital inputs; 16-axis capability; 3- to 5-arcsecond accuracy on the rotary table; axis squareness of 0.0004"; repeatability of 0.0002"; 24" electrode capacity; rapid traverse speeds of 400 ipm in the X, Y and Z axies and 200 ipm in the W axis; spindle speed of 3,000 rpm; output of up to 65 A continuous; and the choice of either a Sinumerik 840D or FANUC 31i CNC.

  • EDM and the Precision Parts Industry

    Although EDM often is not at the forefront of concern for precision machined parts shops, it can play a big role in the production of tooling that these shops use.

  • Masters of the Small Hole

    Hole making is considered the most frequently performed metalworking operation. Hole making on a micro level, say 0.010 inch and smaller, is where it gets interesting. This shop is very good at making small holes.

  • EDM Drill Solves Oil Passage Problem

    This manufacturer was having a problem machining a 0.025-inch diameter oil feed hole at an angle in a hardened steel component called the Bronson Roller. The 30-degree angle of entry and the hardened condition of the roller body made it a difficult task for conventional drilling. The part was one of a family of parts that vary in OD and oil hole angle of entry.
