    What is EDM drilling?

    EDM drilling, like other EDM methods, is the process of drilling holes on an electrically conductive surface with an electrode tube. EDM drilling is optimised to make holes in materials at high speeds, regardless of the hardness or resilience of the material. In this way, it can create clean and deep holes in a range of sizes, suitable for several applications.

    We undertake EDM drilling for blue chip companies in areas as diverse as Defence, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Space and Motorsport. Get in touch with us for a FREE quote today.

    How does EDM drilling work?

    EDM drilling works by making a spark between the workpiece and the electrode tube as it drills. This spark generates heat between the workpiece and electrode and erodes the workpiece. EDM drilling is particularly useful when drilling hard materials, such as hardened tool steel or alloys, and tungsten carbide.

    What are the benefits of EDM drilling?

    Difficult-to-Machine Materials

    EDM drilling allows us to achieve intricate details inside components that would, otherwise, be too complex or impossible to obtain with traditional cutting methods. The process is accurate and won’t compromise the surface finish of the resulting products.

    Quality Finishes

    As it is a non-contact manufacturing process, EDM drilling achieves high-quality finishes. This means that the need for post-processing procedures and surface treatments will be greatly reduced.

    Quick Turnaround

    Our EDM drilling machinery can run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing for quick turnaround times. Our machinery combines high-speed finishing, and micro and automated tool changer capability thus speeding up the production process.


    Our state-of-the-art machinery and automated software allow us to produce intricate, complex parts where a high degree of accuracy is required. EDM drilling also eliminates human error, so each drill comes out perfectly.

    Tight Tolerances

    We work with a range of industries where tight tolerances are essential. Like Wire EDM, EDM drilling is needed where adherence to tight tolerances is required. Our EDM drilling machine can reach holes of 100 microns with stringent tolerances down to 3-5 microns.
