Wire EDM machines are capable of cutting tight tolerance straight through or tapered shapes in a wide variety of metals, including hardened tool steels and exotic alloys. Our machines are some of the most reliable in the industry. The need to produce openings, slots or other features with corners having small radii is common. If you think of the wire electrode as a kind of cutter with a very small diameter, you can imagine its ability to cut very small radii. Because hardened materials can be wire cut, EDM Wire eliminates the need for post-machining heat-treating that can cause possible part distortion. Our wire EDM procedure is a completely submerged process and imposes very little heat stress on the work piece.
