Spark Erosion

Spark Erosion – Essential to Wire EDM, spark erosion is the process of removing material from a work piece with a series of rapidly recurring current charges between two electrodes. The first electrode is the ultra-thin wire, and the second is any electrically conductive material. Spark erosion allows for ultra-tight tolerances, up to 1/25th the thickness of a human hair.
