The Possibilities With EDM Cutting Companies

As companies are able to grow and expand, many are taking advantage of the newest machinery available to help their business thrive. One route in improving production that many companies take is to purchase EDM machines. Electric discharge machining is a method of metal cutting that uses electrodes to essentially melt away the unwanted metal. It leaves a smooth, precision finish while other methods may require additional finishing steps after being shaped. While some companies are unable to begin with these machines because they can be costly, as the company is able to expand they are a product many businesses find is well worth the investment.

Advantages of Various EDM Companies

Electrical Discharge Machining. It is a process you may not hear about it everyday, but you run into its many uses. EDM can be used for car parts, tools, electrical parts and so much more. By using electrical energy it is able to shape metal by essentially melting away the unwanted parts. By cutting and shaping metals with this method, many sizes can be created and they can be done so burr-free. Continue reading

Generally Accepted Conventional EDM

When I hear the word conventional, I think of the guidelines that apply to most people. The word itself means the generally accepted rule or practice. So when I hear conventional electrical discharge machining… I understand that it gets a little confusing. For most people electrical discharge machining isn’t something we work with everyday. Many probably have never heard of it at all. So it’s like saying the conventional method of piloting a rocket ship. Personally, I don’t know anyone that has done this. So while there may be a conventional method amongst the people who have done this in their lifetime, it’s still never going to be conventional to the rest of us. Continue reading

Conventional EDM

Conventional EDM is also referred to as Sinker EDM or Ram, and uses an electrically charged electrode to burn shapes and holes into metal components. The removed material is washed away by a continuous flush of dielectric fluid. This process is used for the most part in the tool and die industry. Materials of varying hardness or toughness can be machined in this way as long as they are electrically conductive. Aerospace and electronic applications also use EDM for materials that are difficult to work with, if they have small/odd angles for example or need to be machined with intricate contours and cavities.
