Wire EDM, often identified as WEDM, is a type of machining which is carried out using a thin wire which can cut in any X, Y, U, V direction. EDM is short for “electric discharge machining.” This type of machining can easily cut any kind of materials which conduct electricity, whether it is a hard or soft material. The thing that makes this significant is the fact that wire EDM can makes cuts without contact, and creates a burr-free finish. The actual type of wire that’s used is remarkably fine, consequently enabling really narrow slots or very small radius cuts on corners.
The wire itself never touches the product being cut, and due to this, there won’t be any cutting forces. This means that it is easy to cut particularly thin items and make precise cuts without causing breakage. Wire EDM has been in use in the industry for roughly fifty years now in several forms.
For Your WEDM Milwaukee Needs
CAM Tech, Inc. started in 1996 to serve the wire EDM needs for Milwaukee. At the time we had a single EDM wire machine and a dedication to providing the best quality and service possible. Now we are a growing facility with 12 high-speed wire EDMs, 2 EDM micro hole drilling stations, and 6,000 newly added square feet of shop space for expansion.
We continue to work very closely with our customers, providing quick turnaround while maintaining a high standard of quality. However, we are now large enough to tackle large production and contract jobs. We take pride in aiding our customers through every phase of the project – from prototyping to production runs. We will work with you and your schedule, and we have the ability to run 24/7.
