6g FHD SA + Laser Ablation
The TEK4 6g Aero Fast Hole Drill machine is our latest generation machine with optional Drill After Coating (DAC) technology. Our most compact sized machine can be featured with a 100w high frequency fibre Laser to remove non-conductive coatings on components. This technology is confined within the FHD EDM machine, allowing for a single operation solution to drill after coating.
6g FHD SA
The TEK4 6g FHD SA machine is the latest generation of our most compact sized machine, it encompasses world leading performance and capability specifically developed for hole drilling of aero. The machine’s compact footprint along with the ability to place machines ‘paint to paint’ utilises space effectively.
6g FHD XLL
The TEK4 6g FHD XLL machine is the latest generation of our largest machine, it encompasses world leading performance and capability, specifically developed for drilling large gas turbine components using fast hole EDM technology and ablating thermal coatings using an integrated laser system.
The TEK4 eSTEM machine is the latest generation of our STEM machine, it encompasses world leading performance and capability specifically developed for drilling very long holes in IGT blades, vanes, segments, and other components.
TEK4’s 5th generation of Laser systems provides exceptional performance, rugged stability, and excellent user-friendly control. Each laser system features a single beam delivery mirror for ease and stability of the beam alignment.
5g FHD ST
The TEK4 5g ST FHD machine is the latest generation of our medium sized machine. It encompasses world leading performance and capability, specifically developed for hole drilling of aero and IGT blades, vanes, and other components.
5g ST MHD
TEK4's 5g multi-hole drilling edm machine, it's designed for producing multiple cooling holes in turbine blades and vanes. This system has the capability to produce straight, shaped and slotted holes.
Advanced Shaped Hole
TEK4’s Shaped Hole Technology combines accuracy and flexibility with process speed. TEK4’s latest shaped hole drilling uses AFC (Adaptive Feedrate Control) which brings 30% improvement in shaped hole drilling times.
3 Steps to Accuracy
Accuracy and repeatability are critical elements when machining turbine components. TEK4's procedure using a simple 3 step approach guarantees both of these. Set the machine, set the electrode and finally, set the part.
TEK4’s tooling system includes tool specific flushing and is simple in design, resulting in a reliable, cost effective and highly accurate system.
