As a specialist in the STEM drilling, laser and EDM technology sectors for applying cooling holes to Jet Engines and Gas Turbines for the energy and aerospace industries, TEK4 has announce an open house event at its Oadby headquarters in Leicester. The event will take place on 30th September 2016 and will mark the opening of the company's new facility by Sir Edward Garnier MP.

The company has recently doubled the size of its headquarters and the event will provide customers with an opportunity to visit the new showroom, the new research centre and also take a look around the production facility. There will be a complete line-up of machine tools on display for customers to investigate the technologies available on TEK4 machines.

Established in 2002, TEK4 specialises in EDM for fast hole drilling, combined EDM and laser machines for hole drilling and ceramic coating ablation, laser for drilling and cutting operations and also ECM for STEM drilling deep cooling holes in gas turbine components. The special process machine tools are used to drill cooling holes in the blades and vanes of jet engines and gas turbines using laser beams, chemical machining or EDM. To increase the efficiency of engines and turbines, ever increasing temperatures are used and this in turns necessitates a greater need for cooling.

Contact the TEK4 team to confirm your attendance at the open house event.
