Automation and leadership in large-dimension EDM

ONA has chosen the BIEMH 2018 to demonstrate its ability to carry out tailored automation projects aimed at optimizing manufacturing times and maximizing the efficiency of production processes. The Basque company has broad experience from simple to complex; from manual loading to highly integrated robot automation projects. We have designed in the ability to run long periods of time unattended if desired, inside or outside of a flexible manufacturing cell. We are a highly custom builder ready to work with customers on their EDM needs.

All visitors to the fair will be able to see two EDM machines at its stand (Hall 1 - F03) from May 28th to June 1st:
• Wire EDM. The ONA AV60 model with our mineral bed filtration producing firtree profiles in turbine discs for the aeronautical sector.
• Die-sinking EDM. The ONA QX8 model with a 40-electrode changer making a mold for the automotive sector.

In addition, anyone interested in EDM and aeronautics will have the opportunity to see an exclusive display of the parts of a turbine that are made with EDM. The Aeronautics Advanced Manufacturing Center (CFAA) and ONA will share a space at the fair where they will be exhibiting a large-size ITP- Rolls Royce gas turbine and some of the parts that were made by EDM on ONA machines.

The future is closer than ever

ONA is holding its ONA OPEN HOUSE AND TECHNOLOGY TALKS 2018, for all those people who, like ONA, are passionate about EDM.
