How wire EDM cutting works

Wire EDM cutting, also known as electrical discharge machining, is a process that uses an electrically energized thin wire to slice through metal. This method uses rapid, controlled, repetitive spark discharges from the wire to the workpiece, thereby eroding the metal away. The workpiece must be electrically conductive.

Advantages

Wire EDM can provide high dimensional accuracy for close fitting parts. The process can make sharp inside corners. EDM can cut material thickness from only a few thousandths of an inch to several inches. Custom tooling is generally not needed.
