Wire EDM Cutting

Wire cutting using EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) or spark machining is a fabrication process used to form metal components into complex structures using electrical discharges or sparks.

Advantages

Unlike more traditional cutting methods, wire EDM machining produces extremely precise cuts in intricate shapes, creating sharp corners and difficult angles or tapered designs. Wire EDM cutting has been proven efficient in several applications, some of which include the below:

  • Tool and die-cutting
  • Turbine wheels
  • Flex elements
  • Washers
  • Bushings
  • Labyrinth rings
  • Retaining rings
  • Stator rings
  • Armature rings

Why Use Wire EDM Cutting?

Wire EDM machining is best suited for cutting extremely hard metals like steels and special alloys. This process is unique since it can accomplish intricate shapes, sharp corners, and difficult angles.
