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