EDM Wire Cutting Perth
EDM Wire Cutting
Electrical discharge machine wire cutting otherwise known as spark erosion utilises high voltage electrical arcing to remove material from a part. The process is cost effective and accurate.
Our EDM wire cutting machine allows the production of complex parts through the use of computer numerical control.
We specialise in parts with geometries that include tapers resulting from profiles that differ from the top of the part to the bottom. Due to the nature of electrical discharge machining we can machine materials that would otherwise not be possible such as tool steel and alloys that have already been heat treated.
EDM wire cutting can be used to produce dies, machining tools, guages and punches like those used for blanking operations. It can also be used to cut keyways accurately.
If you're interested in producing a single run part or a full run of parts using EDM wire cutting please contact one of our engineers for additional information on the process and whether it is suitable for your application.

Wire cut EDM machining is limited to conductive materials only as a result of the process. If you are looking to manufacture a part using non-conductive materials please refer to milling, turning or 5 axis and 4 axis machining.
Some examples of suitable materials:
