Spark Erosion Project – Spark Erode Angled “T” Slots
Industry Sector: Automotive
Type of Work: Spark Eroding
Client Requirements: The client was unable to machine conventionally due to problems with access to the working area and required a quick turnaround of the work to be carried out. Angled “T” Slots – 12 of them in line with tapered pre machined bore were produced. Angular dimension tolerances needed to be tight.
Work Carried Out: To begin with Cheshire Wire Erosion manufactured electrode and electrode holders. The process of spark erosion was applied in this project by vectoring in 3-Axis simultaneously. Spark erosion enables us to machine hardened or difficult to machine conductive materials to create shapes and forms that couldn’t be achieved with conventional manual milling or turning. At Cheshire Wire Erosion we acquire the very best technology to do this. We carry out all work in line with quality systems ensuring quality and delivery and we were able to do the same with this specific project.
The outcome of this project was that we were able to meet our deadlines and the customer was very happy with the results.
