Able Wire EDM has customized sub-micron plunge EDM capabilities as well as 25 micron Wire EDM capability. Wire EDM is a process where a wire typically .004" inch to .012" inch in diameter is electrically charged at a very high voltage, and used to cut precision shapes in prismatic components. The wire is passed from one spool to another and is guided by and an upper and lower guide as it cuts.
Electric discharge machining (EDM) began with the plunge type machining process. Typically called to as Sinker EDM but sometimes also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, burning or die sinking. It's a manufacturing process where the desired shape is "cut" into the workpiece by eroding the material around the "cutter" using electrical discharges (sparks).
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Milling is the most common form of CNC. CNC mills can perform the functions of drilling and often turning. CNC Mills are classified according to the number of axes that they possess. Axes are labeled as x and y for horizontal movement, and z for vertical movement, as shown in this view of a manual mill table.
Small Hole EDM is a specialized component of electrical discharge machining. A small hollow electrode spins about a spindle much like a drill and drill bit (edm drill). The electrode is electrically charged by a servo-controlled generator producing the spark. Water based dielectric flushes through and around the electrode providing a controlled environment for the spark to jump to the work piece.
