CNC wire cutting is a highly accurate method of machining complex parts. Advantages of CNC wire cutting are that parts can be machined after heat treatment, ensuring highly accurate components.
CNC wire cutting puts no load on components it is machining enabling traditionally hard to hold components to be machined.
EDM machining removes metal by eroding material away through electrical discharge (sparks).
There are two main methods of EDM machining, Wire EDM and die sinker (electrode) EDM. Vertical NC EDM machines can be used to burn complex shapes or even drilled holes in hard materials that would otherwise be impossible to machine.
Types of applications used for CNC Wirecutting include:
