Wire EDM

Wire EDM is short for Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and is an electro-chemical production process used to cut high-strength metals and alloys. In the Wire EDM process, a voltage is passed through a thin-wire electrode and the resulting series of rapid electrical discharges (sparks) erode, or cut through, the material. The material to be cut must be electrically conductive and the process uses either a steady stream or a circulating bath of non-conductive fluid (de-ionized water) to flush away the small amounts of material cut away during the process.
