“We needed a fresh start and we were committed to making it happen, on every level, from our physical location to the machine offerings to the markets served and more,” explained Ed Beaumont, the president of Beaumont Machine (Batavia, OH) They have done exactly that by opening their new manufacturing facility in Batavia. “I started this company over 25 years ago, had success in the aerospace industry here in the Cincinnati area and elsewhere,” he added. “After five years of semi-retirement, I returned to run the company with three goals in mind. 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 users, 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.”
Now all three goals have been met, resulting in more business and an expansion into new markets, such as semiconductor materials processing and land-based power generation, particularly turbine blades. Consumable sales have ramped up by securing reliable partners and having the warehouse capacity to carry expanded inventories. Customers can now call on Beaumont for all their consumables needs. “Though our machines are available with Fanuc or Siemens CNC controls,” continued Beaumont, “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.”
Their EDM machines are used primarily for precision placement of the cooling and gas flow holes in various products, from metering and diffuser holes on a jet engine turbine blade to large blade, seals, vanes and transition ducts on power gen equipment and more. They also provide customers fixture design, training, part programming assistance, engineering, turnkeys and vision system integration.
