BEAUMONT MACHINE REACQUIRED BY FOUNDERS
Beaumont Machine is a world-class builder of Electrical Discharge Machines (EDM) for the aerospace, power gen and electronics production industries. Founded by Ed and Tanya Beaumont over 30 years ago, the company was recently repurchased, after the owners had sold the business in early 2013.
Global EDM supplier also moves to new location to enhance production and service capabilities.
As Ed Beaumont explains, “We had a great relationship with the new owner but we believed the company needed a revitalization to benefit our customers, employees and the evolving EDM industry. In addition to repurchasing Beaumont Machine, we have reassumed the day-to-day operation of the company. In addition, we have moved the operation into a larger location to increase production and expand our service capabilities.” That new location is 2010 Glenn Parkway in Batavia, Ohio, just outside Cincinnati.
Beaumont Machine’s contributions to the aerospace and power generation industries are many and, with this buyback, the company is ready to meet the needs of the changing EDM industry. “We pride ourselves on not only understanding the applications in the various industries we serve but also on building the best machines for the applications we encounter, from small hole to large workpieces,” adds Tanya Beaumont.
FH Series, the standard line of Beaumont EDM drilling machines
Fromthe standard mill style EDM to machining cells with complete robotic operation for large aircraft engine and launch vehicle sections, Beaumont has built machines with an 8’ part rotation, a robotic arm with 10’ reach, and machines as small as 36” in width. A new 7-axis EDM drill has just been developed. All Beaumont machines feature the most advanced CNC technology and user interface.
With customers worldwide, as Ed Beaumont observes, “We are committed to innovation and customer partnerships in various industries, in countries around the globe. It’s a testimony to the fact that the world is still hungry for American technology and ingenuity. We’re very proud of that.”
SpaceX custom EDM robotic work cell, entirely designed, engineered, built and commissioned by Beaumont Machine
Ed and Tanya Beaumont founded the company, Beaumont Machine, 30 years ago. Beaumont Machine focuses on building a line of standard EDM’s as well as custom machines plus repairing and retrofitting machine tools of all types. The company started building Fast Hole EDM in 1997 and has been specializing in EDM technology since that time. In 2013, they turned over the ownership of the company to a new owner. With this reacquisition of the company, Ed and Tanya Beaumont are again actively involved in day-to-day operations.
Among its recent successes is a custom robotic EDM work cell for SpaceX, as shown in the attached photo.
