Pentagon Tooling Makes Strong Investment in to Upgraded EDM Machinery

The engineering team at Pentagon Tooling have taken delivery of two new EDM Machines. A Wire Eroder that will replace existing aged technology and an EDM Drill which is a new addition to the comprehensive plant list.  These two new machine’s part funded by the European Regional Development Fund see a combined reinvestment cost of £134,000.00 by the Group and will be a real asset to the highly skilled Engineering team.

The new EDM drill will deliver advanced technology for accuracy and precision within the drilling process and the new Wire Eroder will deliver essential energy efficiency savings and help to reduce manufacturing lead times.
