Faustson Tool has been a leader in manufacturing technology for more than 30 years. Founded in 1981 by Paul and Alicia Svaldi, Faustson began as a small business in an 80-square-foot space, with one milling machine and two employees servicing off-load machine shops. The Svaldi’s insight into the future of high-precision manufacturing placed them on the cutting edge of manufacturing technology, where they have been ever since.
- In the 1980s, Faustson was the first manufacturer to demonstrate the benefits of electric discharge machining technology (EDM), also known as “spark eroding”.
- In the 1990s, Faustson was the first to demonstrate the benefits of five-axis milling and its potential to change the face of manufacturing. Five-axis milling machines have a cutting accuracy of five millionths of an inch, smaller than a strand of hair.
- In the early 2000s, Faustson found success in focusing on refining and revamping electric discharge machining (EDM) into a more advanced technology.
- In the 2010s, Faustson invested in researching the emerging technology of 3D metal printing and will focus its energy on pursuing this technological advancement.
