When typical CNC machine shops are not able to make it, the manufacturing team at EDM Intelligent Solutions can. Contact us today to discuss your part design and how we can apply an intelligent solution to make your impossible part possible.
Electrical Discharge Machining Services
Commonly known as spark eroding, die sinking, wire erosion and wire burning, EDM is an advanced fabrication process that utilizes controlled electrical discharges to remove or erode conductive material from a blank workpiece. This process relies on a tool, called the electrode, that is either a solid shape of conductive material or a thin wire. The electrode is moved in relation to the workpiece in a motion that results in machining of the final intended shape. As the electrode gets ever closer and closer to the surface of the workpiece, and electrical arc is formed which causes the erosion of the blank material. A unique feature of the EDM manufacturing process is that the tool never actually contacts the workpiece. The electrical arc “jumps” from the tool to the workpiece in a series of rapidly pulsating discharges. This non-contact machining allows for extremely tight tolerances to be achieved.
Services Provided by EDM Intelligent Solutions, Tolerances Listed in Microns
⦁ Wire EDM (corner radii as small as 25 micron, accuracies as tight as 1 micron)
⦁ Sinker/Plunge/Ram EDM (features as small as 40 micron)
⦁ EDM Hole Drilling (holes as small as 40 micron in diameter)
⦁ Precision Grinding (tolerances as tight as 2 micron)
As industries continue to miniaturize their products due to demand for ever smaller and more efficient technologies, the need for tighter tolerance machining and manufacturing processed continues to grow. It is not uncommon to see various components be manufactured at EDM Intelligent Solutions that are not visible to the naked eye. The extremely high magnification automated 3D measurement and inspection systems produced by our 3D Metrology Systems group are directly integrated into the micro manufacturing operations and processes used by the EDM Department at EDMIS to machine impossibly small and delicate parts while meeting tolerances as tight as 1 micron.
