Beaumont Machine has opened a new manufacturing plant in Batavia, Ohio under the renewed leadership of its founder.
Beaumont’s electrical discharge machining (EDM) machines are used primarily for precision placement of the cooling and gas flow holes in various products, including metering and diffuser holes. They are used extensively in the production of medical implants, surgical tools and other devices that involve precision shaping, and hard materials such as titanium and cobalt chrome. The company also provides customers fixture design, training, part-programming assistance, engineering, turnkeys and vision system integration.
“I wanted to relocate the business to a larger facility, expand the machine line to offer more companies the benefits of our unique designs and, lastly, grow our consumables business, a key to long-term relationships with EDM customers, precisely because the wire, guides, electrodes, dielectric resin, filters, rotary unions, seal kits and more are critical components to keep the machines up and running,” said founder Ed Beaumont, who recently returned to run the company after five years of semi-retirement. “Though Beaumont machines are available with Fanuc or Siemens CNC controls. Our newest platform with Siemens allows us to create even more shapes with Realtime EDM. We bring them some pretty complex specs and they can always meet the challenges.”
As of today, all three goals have been met, resulting in more business for the company and an expansion into new markets such as semiconductor materials processing, the company said. Beaumont also provides customers fixture design, training, part programming assistance, engineering, turnkeys and vision system integration.
“It’s good to be back in the day-to-day operation of the business,” Ed Beaumont said. “It’s a passion for me and my team. We love solving EDM problems for our customers and will continue to push the envelope in machine performance.”
