Wire EDM, sometimes referred to as WEDM, can be described as form of machining that is executed by using a thin wire that is able to cut in any X,Y,U,V direction. EDM is an acronym for “electric discharge machining.” This form of machining can effectively cut any kind of materials that conduct electricity, whether it is a hard or soft material. The reason this is special is the fact that wire EDM will cut the material without making contact, and creates a burr-free finish. The type of wire which is used is extremely fine, thus making it possible for exceptionally narrow slots or very small radius cuts with corners.
The wire does not ever touch the article being cut, and due to this fact, there are no cutting forces. Consequently it is possible to cut particularly thin stock as well as make delicate cuts without failure. Wire EDM has been around the industry for roughly fifty years now in several forms.
