Wire EDM, in some cases known as WEDM, is a form of machining which is done utilizing a thin wire that can cut in any X, Y, U, and V direction. EDM stands for “electric discharge machining.” This form of machining will cut all types of material which conduct electrical current, whether it is a hard or soft material. The reason this is special is that wire EDM will makes cuts without making contact, and results in a burr-free finish. The actual type of wire which is used is very thin, consequently allowing for really narrow slots as well as small radius cuts in corners.
The wire itself never touches the article being cut, as a result of this, there won’t be any cutting forces. This means that it is easy to cut very thin items as well as to make extremely precise cuts without failure. Wire EDM has been around the manufacturing world for nearly five decades now in a variety of forms.
