Our range of Wire Erosion and Plunge type EDM machines compliment the services provided by our in-house tool room. These machines are used in the production of precision tooling that we manufacture and in the production of extremely accurate shapes that cannot be cost-effectively produced by any other method.
Industries, where we have found our wire erosion machining can offer major benefits due to the very close tolerances that can be maintained include aerospace, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, nuclear, motorsport, military and defence. This capability also compliments our rapid prototyping service and allows for the production of prototype parts prior to investment in production tooling.
Some of the advantages of EDM include machining of:
- Complex shapes that would otherwise be difficult to produce with conventional cutting tools
- Extremely hard material to very close tolerances
- Very small work pieces where conventional cutting tools may damage the part from excess cutting tool pressure.
- Along with our waterjet cutting and metal pressing capabilities, this gives us a full range of fabrication facilities.
