System 3R has been involved in EDM tooling for over 25 years. In 1983 they introduced a rational tooling system for wire EDM. At that time, the wire EDM machine was just beginning to command attention as a valuable tool in the modern machine shop.
In the early 80's when cutting speeds were only 4 to 6 sq. in. per hour a long set up time was tolerable since in many cases the job would probably take several days. However, with wire EDM speeds approaching and exceeding 30 sq. in.,
