Expanding our team …

We are thrilled to announce that Sodick Europe has appointed a brand new team member responsible for consumable sales in all European markets.

Andy Parsons takes on the role. He is no stranger to the Sodick brand of products having joined Sodi-Tech EDM Ltd in 2005.  Andy has developed his skills and experience with the company over the last seven years. He will ensure the competitiveness of our consumable products and their supply to all distributors.

Andy has covered the UK consumables market and is now the first point of contact for all Sodick consumables enquiries from European customers.  His knowledge of our customers and their requirements is extensive, and is in line with our approach to customer service excellence as a company.  It’s one of the key reasons our loyal customers give us repeat business.

Andy has developed first class customer relations skills and always puts his clients first. He is heavily involved in all aspects of service within consumables and is always happy to pass on tips and advice to customers.

As the newest member of the Sodick Europe team, Andy will be building on his excellent work and progress from his time at Sodi-Tech and helping to further Sodick’s reputation as a world-leading manufacturer of consumables and spares.

Speaking of his time at Sodi-Tech Andy said: “It has been great to have grown with a forward thinking company. Demand for our products has increased dramatically since I arrived in 2005 which is testament to the quality of our EDM machines and consumables range. Although Sodi-Tech has grown during my time here, the principles and standards of service have never changed. The company has always treated its customers with the utmost care and attention, and I am looking forward to developing even greater client relationships as I move into the Sodick brand.”

Sodick wire EDM provides 50% speed boost at rapid manufacturing specialist

Laser Prototypes Europe (LPE) is one of the UK and Ireland’s longest-standing specialists in rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing for a plethora of industries. Among its many services is DMLS (direct metal laser sintering) – the 3D printing of metal parts. The ability to print components with complex geometries in short cycle times is a huge competitve advantage for LPE and its customers. The DMLS process requires a lot of heat and energy to sinter the powder, which creates in-built stresses that can lead to distortion of the part. To counter this effect, heatsinks and anchors must be added to the component. After 3D printing, wire EDM is used as a finishing process to remove these and achieve final tolerance. Here, LPE has just added a second machine to its portfolio, a VL600QH from Sodi-Tech EDM, which is performing duties some 50% faster than the existing Sodick machine installed in 2017.
