About the Author:

Carl Sommer is the owner and president of Reliable EDM Corporation in Houston, Texas, the largest wire EDM job shop west of the Mississippi River with over 50 EDMs. He is uniquely qualified to write a book on non-traditional machining. His introduction to the machine tool trade goes back to 1949, at a New York City machine shop. Before starting Reliable EDM, Sommer has worked as a foreman, industrial arts high school teacher, tool designer, and operations manager for a large tool and die and stamping shop and a machining company. Sommer hopes this book, now in its second edition, will keep America s industry competitive through knowledge of emerging new technologies.

Review:

Finally, there is a comprehensive, well written, fully illustrated book, that takes all the mystery out of the most popular Non-traditional Machining Processes, and brings the reader up to date.... Very few of us, even those that try to stay abreast of new technology, understand the current state-of-the-art of all the popular Non-Traditional Machining Processes. The reason for that is, there was never a single source publication that contained all that information in a logical, easy-to-understand format. That has all been changed, since the publishing of Carl Sommer s latest book, The Non-Traditional Machining Handbook! Now everyone can become knowledgeable as to what these processes are capable of, how they work, and the advantages they offer over the more traditional machining technologies. --EDM Today
