Wire EDM

Wire EDMWire EDM – A non-traditional machining process that uses electricity to cut any conductive material precisely and accurately with a thin, electrically charged copper or brass wire as an electrode. When the wire gets close to the part, the attraction of electrical charges creates a controlled spark, melting and vaporizing microscopic particles of material. The process happens quickly, with hundreds of thousands of sparks per second, but the wire never touches the workpiece, so the result is a part with an excellent surface finish and no burrs regardless of how large or small the cut.
