Wire EDM, sometimes called WEDM, is a form of machining which is accomplished by using a thin wire that has the ability to cut in any X,Y,U,V direction. EDM is an acronym for “electric discharge machining.” This type of machining can effectively cut all types of material that conduct electrical current, regardless of whether it’s a hard or soft material. The reason this is important is that wire EDM will cut the material without contact, and produces a burr-free finish. The actual wire that is utilized is very fine, consequently enabling really narrow slots or small radius cuts on corners.
The wire itself never touches the piece being cut, and because of this fact, there aren’t any cutting forces. Consequently it’s possible to cut very thin items and make delicate cuts without problems. Wire EDM has been around the business for about half a century now in various forms.
