Our 3-axis Sodick Aq55l EDM machine can independently move 3 machine axes to generate taper cuts, as well as creating internal splines on hubs and gears, which makes us a perfect fit for aerospace, electronics industry, and the medical field. A precision stamping die can be machined and extrusion dies can be cut with the taper constantly changing.
This sinker EDM can be accurate to +/-.0001″ with virtually no burrs. Since no cutting forces are present, wire EDM is ideal for delicate parts. No tooling is required and delivery times are short.
Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), sometimes colloquially also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, burning, die sinking, wire burning or wire erosion, is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges (sparks). Material is removed from the workpiece by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between two electrodes, separated by a dielectric liquid and subject to an electric voltage. One of the electrodes is called the tool-electrode, or simply the “tool” or “electrode”, while the other is called the workpiece-electrode, or “workpiece”.
