TEK4 FHD (Fast Hole Drill) edm systems are so of the most advanced EDM machines on the market. With world leading features and great flexibility, our Fast hole drill machines are prefect for drilling cooling holes into aero blades, IGT blades, vanes, segments and other components. Our EDM systems come in three different sizes, 6g FHD Aero a small compact machine allowing for paint to paint placement, 6g FHD ST machine which is our medium sized cross over machine, giving you the ability to drill medium sized aero/IGT components and finally the 6g FHD XLL / GXL edm machine which is our largest machine and is designed for drilling and laser ablation on large gas turbine components, the machine's configuration enables larger then expected components to be machined in a single setup. 

Fast Hole Drill EDM Machines

TEK4 offers a range of world-leading performance and capability fast hole drill EDM machines. These machines are specifically developed for hole drilling of aero, industrial gas turbine blades, vanes, segments, and other components. 

 

TEK4s 6g machines are the latest generation of fast hole drill EDM machines, featuring many new technologies and systems, including a completely new control system, through-flushing tooling, and drill after coating (DAC) technology to name a few.
