and get them ready to go while other jobs are running  on  the machines," he explains.
   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.,
