the heart of an essentially agricultural and touristic area, Celoplás in the
north of Portugal produces high-precision plastic parts by injection moulding
for the international automotive industry, electronics industry, medical technology
and the domestic appliance industry. The owner and Managing Director
João Cortez sees his concentration on cutting-edge technology as the
key to his success. And this explains why he has nothing but wire-cutting and
die-sinking EDM systems from Mitsubishi Electric in his toolshop.
Csaba Tool Kft. is located in Ajka’s popular industrial area. The paint has only just dried on the workshop walls, as work began merely a year ago. The 500 square metre workshop and the office building form a harmonious unit, filled with functional spaces. Behind its walls, moulding and die casting tools are being made for domestic and foreign buyers.
Bertrand Bonnay, owner and managing director of the small jobshop AEMB in Thyez, France, was looking for a cost-effective, technically advanced and above all dependable alternative to his previous wire-cut EDM systems. By investing in an MV1200R, he’s hit the bullseye.
While children in this part of the world have fun with cuddly and other toys, many Japanese have a pronounced predilection for all things childlike.

Sometimes even tiny parts can be crucial – at least as far as those fastening elements from Springfix are concerned that can be found in almost all cars. EDM systems from Mitsubishi Electric provide the necessary precision during their production.
With over decades of experience and dedication to the profession, Péter Badics talks about his tool-making company that celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. He has been working together with his son Bálint for more than ten years. During that time they have created a small company from their experience in running a private enterprise. Their aim is to utilise their accumulated knowledge in a prosperous and customer-driven business.
