EDM is a machining method of removing material by discharge heat, by which its surface is melted and vaporised. It is used in a wide range of industries and is a beneficial machining option for today’s engineer. It is a valuable resource that can be used to cut complex shapes out of tough or hardened materials.
Wire erosion which is an EDM process creates electrical sparks between the workpiece and a metal wire. As the wire moves along the material the sparks created remove the material. The advantage of this is that it can provide high definition accuracy for close and tight fitting parts. Repeatability is also an inherent characteristic of this machining method.
Wire-Cut EDM, Die-Sinker EDM and Small Hole Drilling EDM are extremely precise time saving and cost-effective methods of cutting, shaping and re-sizing of hard or soft, electrically conductive materials. What also makes EDM different to other machining methods is that it is a non-contact process that induces no stresses into the workplace.
At Cheshire Wire Erosion we employ staff that are highly experienced and qualified in this type of machining.
Having invested in a range of machinery produced by world leading company Sodick we can offer a high-quality wire erosion service. We can provide a variety of wire diameters which enable designs with differing corner radii to be cut. The machines can also ensure that the critical surface finish required is met and deliver components with tapered angles. Just some of the features of what we can produce with the technology that we have.
Cheshire Wire Erosion is an intelligent option for anyone looking for precision engineering. Our team will be delighted to answer any questions you may have so don’t hesitate to contact us.
