What is Wire Electrical Discharge Machining
Wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a process of metal machining in which a tool discharges thousands of sparks to a metal workpiece. A non-conventional process, wire EDM works on parts resistant to conventional machining processes, but only if these parts are electrically conductive; usually, they are non-ferrous, and include steel, titanium, super alloys, brass, and many other metals. Instead of cutting the material, EDM melts or vaporizes it, leaving little debris and providing a very accurate line. Industry-wide acceptance has led to a wide variety of EDM applications, as it is highly versatile, can cut hard metals, and utilizes a relatively compact amount of workspace.
How Wire Cut Machining Works
Wire EDM machining works by creating an electrical discharge between the wire or the electrode and the work piece. As the spark jumps across the gap, material is then removed from the work piece and the electrode. Due to the inherent properties of the process, Wire EDM can easily machine complex parts and precision components out of hard conductive materials. To stop the sparking process from shorting out, a non-conductive fluid or dielectric is also used in the process. The waste material is removed by the dielectric, and the process continues.
Wire cut EDM equipment is run by computer numerically controlled (CNC) instruments, which can control the wire on a three-dimensional axis to provide greater flexibility. Whereas conventional EDM cannot always produce tight corners or very intricate patterns, wire EDM’s increased precision allows for intricate patterns and cuts.
Advantages of High Speed Wire Cutting Machining
Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to machine hard and electrically conductive materials. Wire EDM offers the additional benefit of accuracy in creating part shapes. Machining with a hard and challenging material that also happens to be electrically conductive, EDM is a machining method you should consider for higher accuracy and cost-effectiveness.
