About Milco Wire EDM
Many customers, companies and visionaries alike consider the importance of possibilities available to them at MILCO by combining or integrating various combinations of highly specialized machines, supported with ultra precise tooling and robotics, along with a highly trained and dedicated staff of personnel to run and oversee each customers satisfaction. After all, what customer wouldn't want faster turnaround time, optimum accuracy and cost effective prices? It is every machine shop owner's goal to provide this service to it's customers, Steve Miller, owner of MILCO Wire EDM, Inc./ DBA MILCO Waterjet is one such shop of that caliber.
Steve, who will be celebrating his 25th year in the machine shop business, started his career as a Tool and Die Apprentice. With his sharp intuitiveness and excellent foresight, Steve became even more fascinated with modern machining technology and the capabilities it brought to the manufacturing environment. Having realized the extensive possibilities of EDM machining, he decided to follow his dream of starting his own business.
Because MILCO's goal is to provide its customers with the fastest service and best possible prices, it has grown to become one of the leaders in the EDM machining industry. Although Steve Miller has gained great success thus far, he is still not one to rest. Having become very knowledgeable about the latest technology in waterjet cutting, he recognized the possibilities of combining all of his EDM machines along with the waterjet in order to provide a full service machine shop.
The Waterjet machine is able to do less critical portions of the job much faster, cheaper and easier, leaving the more critical cuts to the EDM machines. In the event that conventional machining is required, MILCO also has in-house capabilities. According to Steve, the Waterjet is so important for successful and affordable machining that he maintains "In the near future, if you have a band saw, you will soon be replacing it with a Waterjet machine". Waterjet cutting has been used primarily by Decorative Designers and Advertising Industries, however more and more larger aerospace companies now have a need for that service.
