What is EDM? The acronym EDM is derived from Electrical Discharge Machining and not Electronic Dance and Music. Wire erosion concepts
Electric Discharge Machining The basic EDM process is an electrical spark that is created between an electrode and a work piece. This electric spark produces intense heat with temperatures reaching 8000 to 12000 degrees Celsius, melting almost anything. Wire erosion concepts
Wire Cutting EDM wire cutting uses a metallic wire to cut a programmed contour in a work piece. Extrusion dies and blanking punches and various other forms of jigs and fixtures are often machined by wire cutting. Cutting is always through the entire work piece.
