Marked “Xactly”Published on: September 1, 2007
A uniquely devoted wire electrical-discharge machining (EDM) job shop that provides a high level of service to a wide variety of industries-that’s how Xact Wire EDM Corp. defines itself. Two years ago the company purchased its MicroLase marker from Schmidt Marking Systems with the intent of bringing in-house some of the marking applications that it had been subcontracting. “Turnaround became too critical,” says Troy McGroarty, the company’s quality assurance manager. “And being able to define the parameters for marking fonts and such became increasingly difficult to communicate to contractors.” Gubbins adds that speed is what got him interested in the laser.
