1822, and in the following year pushed a resolute band of trappers across the mountains to the banks of the Green River or Colorado of the West, often known by the Indian name of the Seeds-ke-dee Agie
. This attempt was followed up and sustained by others, until in 1825 a footing was secured, and a complete system of trapping organized beyond the mountains.
One Mr Efe Akpososo, who spoke to TribuneOnline quoted a delegate lamenting thus: 'when we got the wind that Omo-Agege had hijacked the tags and handed it over to Stella Okotete, we mobilized from Savannah where we went for accreditation to AGIES
, but to our surprise policemen at the gate refused our entry.
The Agies have allowed K&K to perform jobs that would not have been considered with the older machines - for example, producing beryllium copper electrical terminals, requiring a 0.004[inch] (0.10mm) dia wire to cut a 2[inches] carbide workpiece with tight, 0.003[inch] (0.08mm) corner radii.
The Agies are programmed to run weekends and nights.
Today, the job shop has five Agie wire-cut systems from Agie USA Ltd, Davidson, NC.
Its Agie wire EDMs run up to 70 hr unattended regularly.

For example, Job Planning software in Agie machines eliminates the complexity of programming to do the job it is designed to do.
The technology leaders among Agie's expanded line of 14 wire-cut EDM systems are its 170/270/370 Series machines that incorporate many leading edge innovations:
Agie's Agietron U-series sinker EDMs include six models ranging in size from the compact AT 1U to the AT 6U, which, according to the company, provides the industry's largest standard worktank.
