EDM machining is one of our many strengths and capabilities. We routinely machine complex 3D shapes with angles up to 45 degrees within a maximum work envelope of 23.6″ x 15.7″ x 16.7″ capable of using wire sizes of .oo4″-.012″ and resolution of +.000002″ (2 Millionths). Our EDM department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
EDMs are typically used in tool and die production but have many other applications in manufacturing, aerospace and medical industries. Benefits of EDM machining include the ability to machine hard materials that are difficult to machine using traditional techniques. We typically machine pre-hardened materials without having to soften and then reharden. Materials conducive to EDM machining are any electrically conductive metals including Tool Steel (A2, D2, O1, etc.), Aluminum, stainless steel, hastelloy, monel and inconel.
