EDM invests GBP 1m in new CNC machines to support growth

EDM, a global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, has announced that it has invested GBP 1m in a suite of new CNC machines to support its strong growth.

Purchased over the past 12 months to help meet the demands of EDM´s rapidly growing order book, the four new CNC machines enable the company to design and manufacture any component required for its range of market-leading training simulators for the civil aviation and defence markets. The new machines have already significantly improved manufacturing times and reduced reliance on third party component suppliers.

The new state-of-the-art CNC machines are supported by the company´s existing CNC machining capability and suite of manual milling and turning machines. The investment in this new equipment has enabled the current manual machinist team to be upskilled whilst also creating a number of new roles.
