Wire EDM, in some cases identified as WEDM, can be described as form of machining which is executed by using a thin wire which can easily cut in any X, Y, U, V direction. EDM stands for “electric discharge machining.” This kind of machining effectively cuts all types of materials which conduct electrical current, whether it is a hard or soft material. The reason this is important is the fact that wire EDM will makes cuts without making contact, and results in a burr-free finish. The particular type of wire that’s used is rather fine, thereby enabling exceptionally small slots or small radius cuts in corners.
The wire does not ever touch the piece being cut, and because of this fact, there won’t be any cutting forces. Because of this it’s easy to cut incredibly thin stock as well as make extremely precise cuts without causing failure. Wire EDM has been in use in the business for about fifty years now in various forms.
