Summary by Maxiloc
Diecraft commissioned Waldmann LED detachable lights to their EDM machines with positive results. The cost savings have been measurable in the key areas of increased productivity due to operator comfort and accuracy of work, decreased power consumption by eliminating the requirement of replacement batteries, Increased service life and less maintenance time. Diecraft expect the Waldmann LED lights will be in service for at least seven years without the need for maintenance, this in itself being a huge cost benefit to both Diecraft and the environment.
