EDM / Wire EDM And Surface Grinding
EDM is a method for cutting holes, pockets and other shapes into hardened steel, as well as imparting a surface texture to the internal cavities of mold tools. A sacrificial electrode in an electrolyte bath discharges a high-powered electric spark to erode very hard materials that would be difficult or impossible to do with any other method. Square pocket holes are often created with this method. With wire EDM, a wire is continuously fed between two spools. When electrically charged, it’s able to cut through hardened tool steels quickly and accurately.
We also offer surface grinding services. When surface grinding, the workpiece is held stationary on a horizontal plate. The surface grinding wheel is computer controlled to abrade the workpiece to a precise depth.
