We are once more investing in enhanced Capability and Capacity. A DMG MORI SEIKI type NLX 2500SY.700 CNC Lathe has been purchased and will be commissioned during January. This state of the art additional machine will help reduce lead times for CNC turning requirements and will allow us to continue to offer fast, efficient, cost competitive machining solutions for both small and medium batch sizes. Talk to Nigel or James for more information and a competitive quote.
Amdale has over 25 years experience in EDM Wire Erosion and we have continuously invested in the latest technology in this area. We currently have immediate available capacity in our EDM department.
How does Wire EDM work?
EDM stands for “Electrical Discharge Machine” whereby an electrical charge is applied to an electrode, a brass wire, copper, sterling, or graphite. The electrode then makes an electrical connection with the steel. A spark jumps from the electrode to the work piece and disintegrates the steel with a controlled electrical charge. This process happens thousands of times per second. The mirror image of the electrode is formed in the work piece.

5 Axis Machining
Complex components or innovative designs require more sophisticated machining technology which is why we have invested in the latest machining equipment in order to fulfil demand from our customers. 5-Axis Machining, renowned for its accuracy and flexibility, has become Amdale’s main area of expertise. We have invested heavily in this department, with seven modern 5-Axis Machining centres, of which the latest two are enhanced with dynamic accuracy packs on the linear drives, 60-tool carousels, Renishaw probes and laser tool setting.
Using Delcam’s CAD, CAM and inspection software helps precision engineering company, Amdale Limited, to combine rapid lead times, high quality and competitive value with engineering excellence in order to be its customers’ supplier of choice.
Amdale purchased its first Delcam software fifteen years ago and now operates two seats of PowerSHAPE, two of PowerMILL and one of PowerINSPECT to support its range of five-axis machines.
Nathan Cheung, Programming Manager at Amdale commented “After evaluating numerous CADCAM packages we opted for Delcam because of the quality of the finish produced on our sample components. We were also impressed with the pre/after-sales care, the fact the product is tested in a real-life environment in Delcam’s own machine shop and the re-investment into development that ensures the software is at leading edge of the CADCAM sector.”
