Precision Wire EDM Machining Services

How Accurate is Wire EDM?

Wire EDM, also known as wire cutting, is a highly precise machining process that utilizes an electrical current discharge and a thin, single-strand metal wire, typically made of brass or coated, submerged in a tank of deionized water. This cutting-edge technique employs CNC programming to guide the wire through a specified pattern, enabling it to efficiently cut through extremely hard or thick materials.

Ideal for flat metal parts that demand exceptional precision, wire EDM excels at achieving tight tolerances. It is also a go-to method for producing tooling and dies required for various manufacturing processes. Notably, wire EDM is applicable only to materials that exhibit electrical conductivity.

By leveraging the power of wire EDM, you can ensure the creation of intricate designs with utmost accuracy, surpassing commonly accepted tolerances of +/- 0.0002" (0.005mm). Understanding the process and its capabilities empowers designers and toolmakers to make informed decisions, influencing both design outcomes and cost considerations.

Capabilities of our Wire EDM Services

  • Hold tolerances of better than +- 0.0001” regardless of material composition and thickness
  • Create complex designs with excellent precision and repeatability
  • Capable of manufacturing tapered holes, as well as very fine holes
  • Due to a lack of direct contact, delicate sections and weak materials can be machined without alteration
  • Machine container internal contours and internal corners down to R. 008”
