Electrical discharge machining (EDM engineering) is a manufacturing process that uses electrical sparks to cut into metal. We provide EDM engineering to high-profile companies in Defence, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Space and Motorsport industries. There are several types of EDM engineering…
Wire EDM Engineering
Using a wire as the tools electrode, Wire EDM engineering prevents the material from eroding from the wire itself by continually switching. The process of wire EDM engineering is particularly suited to tough materials such as Inconel and hardened tool steels.
How does Wire EDM engineering work?
Where the quality of finish is paramount, Wire EDM engineering machinery utilises several minuscule cuts or ‘skims’ of the part removing microns of material at a time. This process is particularly useful for the manufacture of intricate, complex parts where a high degree of accuracy is required.
