How does a Wire electrical discharge machining work?

The precision of operation and the ability to process a variety of conductive materials – these are just some of the attributes that characterize EDM. Have you wondered what the other traits of these machines are and how it works? We invite you to read!

Operating Principles of an EDM machine

Wire EDM machining (Electrical Discharge Machining) is an electro thermal production process where a thin single strand metal wire, along with de-ionised water (used to conduct electricity) allows the wire to cut through metal by the use of heat from electrical sparks, while preventing rust.Apart from the purely physical aspects of operation, it is worth knowing that this type of machine is used to work on difficult-to-cut, very hard materials, such as steel.

Advantages of an EDM machine

Modern machines are distinguished by:
• speed of work – they significantly reduce the time of machining materials, they operate efficiently and without failures,
• accuracy and precision – they closely reflect the design in details, the effects of EDM work in the form of processed materials are precisely finished,
• high surface quality of materials – very low roughness of produced elements affects their final effect in the production process,
• versatility – they are able to process materials in a comprehensive manner, considering details impossible to achieve by other machining machines.

Depending on the particular brand or manufacturer, individual machines may vary in terms of operating parameters.

Mitsubishi MV2400S wire electrical discharge machine

We are currently using the Mitsubishi MV2400S EDM model. It is a machine with a solid construction, powerful tube engine and high efficiency. It’s worth to point out ergonomics of this machine, which at the end provides lower costs of the production process. Thanks to it, we are able to provide an EDM machining service at a favorable price while maintaining high quality process.
