What is Wire EDM


Wire EDM English name Wire Electrical Discharge Machining, referred to as Wire EDM, also abbreviated as WEDM, belonging to the special processing technology category, is a machining machine. Widely used in super-hard materials, difficult to process materials and thin-walled parts processing.

Classification of EDM include machining

1.    Reciprocating type High Speed Wire cut Electrical Discharge Machining.

2.    Low Speed one-way walk Wire cut Electrical Discharge Machining.

3.    Vertical Wire Electrical Discharge Machining machine tool With Rotation Wire.

Applications of EDM include machining

1.    Prototype production.

2.    Coinage die making.

3.    Small hole drilling.

4.    Metal disintegration machining.

5.    Closed loop manufacturing.

Advantages of EDM include machining

1.    Complex shapes that would otherwise be difficult to produce with conventional cutting tools.

2.    Extremely hard material to very close tolerances.

3.    Very small work pieces where conventional cutting tools may damage the part from excess cutting tool pressure.

4.    There is no direct contact between tool and work piece. Therefore, delicate sections and weak materials can be machined without perceivable distortion.

5.    A good surface finish can be obtained; a very good surface may be obtained by redundant finishing paths.

6.    Very fine holes can be attained.

7.    Tapered holes may be produced.

8.    Pipe or container internal contours and internal corners down to R .001".
