What is Wire EDM?

Wire EDM (electrical discharge machining) services are our specialty. We offer standard as well as high precision tolerances as tight as 0.0001″ (2µm)for an array of industries and applications. Our wire EDM machines can run multiple wire sizes from 0.0120″ (300µm) down to micro wire as small as 0.0008″ (20µm) in diameter! Our experience and state-of-the-art equipment enable us to provide repeatable highest quality parts and components from any type of conductive material.
