Precision Wire Cutting – Pastry Cutters
Project Name: Pastry Cutters
Type of Work: Food Industry
Cheshire Wire Erosion was approached by a long-standing client and asked to wire erode a set of pastry cutters to their specifications. More specifically we were to produce two off cutters from a stainless-steel blank. They also wanted us to wire erode a twin aperture cutter holding plate that the two cutters could be attached to.
From the original piece of stainless steel, we were able to wire erode the cutters which were semi-circular. From the same piece of stainless steel we wire eroded the holding plate. You can see in the photographs the piece of stainless steel that we started off with and how we wire eroded this to produce the shape of two cutters and the holding plate as well as what the final piece looked like once put together.
Work Carried Out:
To complete this project, we used our Sodick AG600L. Over the years we have invested in the very best technology and keep up to date with developments in EDM machinery. As an example, our Sodick AG600L is a precision wire cutting machine that features a revolutionary design. The work tank retracts fully into the body of the unit enabling us to easily machine both large and small work pieces. This means that, as with this project, we could complete the piece of work to the exacting specifications of our client and within the deadline.
Our ongoing investment in the latest EDM machinery means that we can carry out fast and precise wire erosion. We can produce complex parts and precision machined components in a variety of metals of different thicknesses. We will always endeavour to work with our clients to offer flexible solutions that meet your requirements. Our highly skilled work force combined with our use of the best technology and machinery help us to do this.
