Wire cutting, also known as electro-discharge machining (EDM), wire EDM, or wire cut, is a precise and sophisticated cutting process used in the field of precision machining. This method utilizes a thin metal wire, typically made of brass or copper, which is electrically charged and moves at high speed to cut through materials.
Our wire cutting service is part of our expertise that sets us apart. By utilizing specialized machines that combine water and electricity, this process allows us to create precise shapes, even with parts measuring up to 16 inches in height. The results achieved through this technique are characterized by their meticulousness and impeccable precision!
Wire cutting is utilized in numerous industries for the manufacturing of precise and complex parts. Here are some examples of commonly produced parts by wire cutting in various industries:
Wire cutting is primarily used for cutting conductive materials such as steel, aluminum, brass, copper, and titanium. However, it can also be used to cut non-conductive materials using special techniques such as pre-drilling.
With our wire cutting machines, it is possible to precisely cut parts up to 16 inches in height.
Wire cutting offers high precision, allowing for tolerances typically below 0.001 inch (0.025 mm).
Simple parts can be cut in a matter of minutes, while more complex parts may require several hours. The required time depends on various factors such as complexity, size and density.
