Wire EDM; Electrical Discharge Machining, is a process that uses electric current and fine wire to cut and shape metals, metal alloys and other conductive materials. It leaves a smooth surface that usually requires no further finishing or polishing.
Our high precision CNC driven Wire EDM facility is capable of producing precision, high aspect ratio apertures and features that could not be achieved using other metal cutting techniques
The process is highly accurate and repeatable. It produces exceptionally precise, parallel sidewalls, allowing stacking when machining multiple parts from sheet material. Taper cuts, free curves and complex shapes can be achieved simply by rotating the axis of the wire before or during the process.
Further finishing is generally unnecessary and parts may be used immediately in assembly, minimising the time between design and delivery.
