Electrical discharge machining is a machining method primarily used for hard metals and required geometries that are very difficult or impossible to machine using the traditional techniquesof milling, drilling, and grinding whose material removal mechanism is essentially based on mechanical forces. EDM can cut intricate contours or cavities in pre-hardened metals without the need for heat treatment to soften and re-harden them. This method can be used to machine aluminum and steel as well as the more exotic metal alloys such as titanium,kovar, and inconel.EDM can also produce extremely fine surface finishes.
The EDM process can be implemented in three main ways: as a constantly feeding wire electrode(wire EDM), as a pre-shaped electrode that is usually machined out of graphite(sinker EDM), and as a straight feeding electrode used mainly for hole making. These three specialized machining techniques can supplement conventional machining processes to accomplish virtually any production task…and Computer Integrated Machining offers them all.
Computer Integrated Machining offers wire EDMservices that can meet any and all of your manufacturing needs. The wire EDM process is ideal for a number of specialized applications:
Sinker EDM machining, like Wire EDM, uses spark erosion to machine blind cavities.
This process employs machined electrodes that produce sparks along the surface of the electrode to sink or plunge the cavity. The Sinker EDM process is ideal for a number of applications:
EDM hole drilling is similar to other EDM process and employs a straight feeding wire for applications such as:
