An effective cutting solution we’ve improved over time

Businesses all over the world need the best materials for their projects. Lacklustre metals for example are no good to them since they won’t be of much use. In fact, low quality products can be dangerous to use, especially if there are too many flaws in them. Fortunately, our company works to provide the best metal products. In addition, we can offer services like wire erosion.

What is it?

Wire erosion is an accurate cutting service that uses a strand of wire to cut a workpiece. Another name for it is Electronic Discharge Machining (EDM). What happens here is electrical sparks between the wire and workpiece do the cutting. The process is able to cut many types of metal.

In addition to being very accurate, this is an incredibly cost effective solution. By using the technique, you will have the means to cut through complex shapes and even very tough materials. The cut is also cleaner than you can get with blade cutting. Because of all these advantages, businesses from many industries favour it over other processes.

Improving accuracy

In recent history, the accuracy of wire erosion has increased even more. This has been possible by closely managing the sparks via dielectric deionised water. It is the water’s job to rapidly wash away those particles that could affect the cutting. Moreover, it functions as a coolant to ensure the metal does not overheat.

Other uses

In addition to the positives we spoke of above, there are other uses for wire erosion. For one thing, you are able to achieve just about any surface finish with it. Secondly, it is easy to use it to drill fine holes. Furthermore, you will be able to finish your work with intricate detailing.

Some people may choose not to use the technique because it can be a little costly. However, it is well worth the investment in most cases. This is especially true if you want accurate cuts and precise surface finishing.
