COMMITTED TO TRAINING THE INDUSTRY·S FUTURE PROFESSIONALS

As part of our collaboration programme with a number of training centres, on 23 February,  ONA held a conference aimed at stimulating interest in electrical discharge machining and the new opportunities for innovation in the sector. The training was provided by Mikel Oceja and Gregorio García, with the participation of Miriam Milán from the Regional Government's Education Department.

 It was an activity-packed day, covering numerous key areas of EDM technology. ONA, at the forefront of the development of this technology, is the oldest manufacturer of this type of machinery in the world and a global leader in the industry. Our experience and commitment to the future made this conference a valuable opportunity to share our knowledge and passion for this technology.

 Among the topics covered, both speakers presented the major advantages of electrical discharge machining for the mould industry, the first to adopt this technology, and for the aerospace and energy sectors. The countless advances made in researching the process and its fields of application have helped to greatly increase the number of industrial processes suitable for the application of EDM technologies.

 The conference was also used to give a basic overview of the types of electrical discharge machining in the industry, with the differences between both processes being explained: sinker EDM and wire EDM. The former technology uses the electrode to machine the materials. In the latter, a conductor wire with a small diameter is the tool used to cut the material. ONA has some of the industry's most cutting-edge machines in both technologies.

 These conference are highly motivational for education professionals who are interested in the technology and innovation sectors. The high turnout and success of the conference have encouraged us to continue working in this area and to design further training activities at future dates and in other cities. We want to thank everyone who helped to make this a success, in particular the speakers who were key to everything, Mikel Oceja and Gregorio García.
