Wire EDM Machining

We offer both wire EDM machining and EDM hole drilling services, utilizing state-of-the-art, CNC-operated production equipment to give our customers precision parts and components that match their unique design specifications.

We offer a complete line of wire EDM services, including:

EDM Hole Drilling

EDM hole drilling works on the same technical principles as wire EDM processing. However, instead of wire, EDM hole drilling uses an electrically-charged metallic electrode tool that works much like a traditional drill bit for hole machining. The material being worked serves as the second electrode, and electrical discharge between the workpiece and the tool creates sparks that rapidly cut away material. Both the electrode tool and the workpiece are submerged in deionized water, which flushes away cutting debris and acts as a dielectric safety barrier.

Laser Part Marking

You can find laser-printed marks on all kinds of products – from solar panels to plastic toothbrushes. Laser part marking uses innovative, smart technologies to create precise markings on a wide range of materials. At American Wire EDM, we’re proud to say that we offer laser part marking services with the help of state-of-the-art technology from Datalogic.

Materials

Electrical discharge machining is a machining method primarily used for hard metals or those that would be very difficult to machine with traditional techniques. Wire EDM typically works with materials that are electrically conductive. EDM can cut intricate contours or cavities in pre-hardened steel without the need for heat treatment to soften and re-harden them.

Rapid Drilling Capabilities
with High Precision & Accuracy

EDM hole drilling works on the same technical principles as wire EDM processing. However, instead of wire, EDM hole drilling uses an electrically-charged metallic electrode tool that works much like a traditional drill bit for hole machining. The material being worked serves as the second electrode, and electrical discharge between the workpiece and the tool creates sparks that rapidly cut away material. There is no physical contact between the tool and the workpiece; therefore, no cutting forces are involved. This enables extremely high dimensional accuracy and results in drilled holes with fine finishes that require no additional work to remove burrs or smooth the surface.
