Wire EDM, sometimes identified as WEDM, can be described as method of machining which is executed by using a thin wire that can easily cut in any X,Y,U,V direction. EDM is an acronym for “electric discharge machining.” This kind of machining will cut all types of material that conduct electricity, whether it’s a hard or soft material. The thing that makes this important is that wire EDM can makes cuts without contact, and results in a burr-free finish. The actual type of wire which is used is extremely fine, consequently enabling very narrow slots as well as very small radius cuts with corners.
The wire itself in no way touches the article getting cut, and due to this, there aren’t any cutting forces. Because of this it is possible to cut incredibly thin stock and make precise cuts without failure. Wire EDM has been in use in the manufacturing world for around half a century now in several forms.
