  • Aerospace and EDM

    There are so many benefits to choosing electrical discharge machining. These processes are able to create all of the precision pieces that are needed in high technological industries such as aerospace. Space is a subject that seems capable of interesting everyone to a degree, whether it is looking at stars, wondering if life exists on other planets or hoping to explore space yourself. The term aerospace is used to refer to Earth's atmosphere as well as the space around it. It is also used to describe the various industries that...

  • The Process of EDM

    If the average person walked into a conversation with two people discussing EDM, or electrical discharge machining, they would probably just turn around and walk away. Although it is a process of vital importance to the industrial and technological world, to the average joe it's just something probably mentioned on Big Bang Theory. EDM is a process used to cut, drill and machine metal parts with the use of electrical energy. It's used in a number of fields such as medical, aerospace, electronics, food and beverage, defense and automobile. While...

  • Electrical Discharge Machining and the Race to Space

    Growing up, I was always fascinated by space. All the possibilities of what could be out there, be it other life forms, other suns or just the fact there are so many stars that you could never finish counting them. After numerous school trips to the planetarium, I realized I clearly wasn't the only one who thought this way. A topic that inspired an intense race to space during the cold war, that has been debated and researched for thousands of years it's obviously a topic that isn't going to...

Industry Information

Electrical Discharge Machining

Electrical discharge machining is a tooling method that uses electrical energy to cut, drill, etch and machine metal parts and is one of the most accurate types of machining. Hard metals and other materials are difficult to machine cleanly with conventional mechanical-cutting methods and therefore EDM machining is used.

Electrical discharge machining is a tooling method that uses electrical energy to cut, drill, etch and machine metal parts and is one of the most accurate types of machining. Hard metals and other materials are difficult to machine cleanly with conventional mechanical-cutting methods and therefore EDM machining is used. The process erodes the material in the path of the EDM tool using electrical discharges, or sparks. The "tool electrode" forms an arc to the "work piece electrode" as the two are brought closer together, creating the intense electric field which is responsible for removing material. Applications such as manufacturing molds and dies for die casting and forging, as well as parts and components for industries such as food and beverage, automobile, defense, electronics and medical are common uses of conventional EDM. Using a dielectric fluid bath to prevent unwanted sparks and to flush away machining debris, EDM cutting and drilling is able to produce parts with high tolerances and accuracy. As there is no contact between the machine and the work piece, there is no potential for impact damage either, resulting in a high quality piece with minimal imperfections and wastage. EDM is typically used for electrically conductive materials and some which are commonly processed with CNC EDM include aluminum, copper, zinc, bronze, tin, silicon, titanium and stainless steel.

The actual electrical discharge machining is accomplished through carefully created sparks, which are electrical discharges that can generate heat anywhere from eight to twenty thousand degrees. A shaped tool, electrode or wire is used to generate the series of sparks, depending on the process. There is no actual physical cutting contact but rather a conductive path that is established between the electrode and the material which melts away the unwanted portions of the work piece. Electrical discharge machining services are engineered towards specific applications. Different types of machining include sinker EDM which is used for more complex geometries and for holes and patterns or wire EDM which specifically cuts patterns and shapes through a selected part or assembly. CNC machines are used to guide, monitor and control the electrical discharge machining process, as well as CAD and CAM software. Electrical discharge machining has advantages over other machining techniques due to its ability to create complex and intricate parts with a high degree of accuracy. Another advantage of electrical discharge machining is its ability to machine parts on an extremely small scale.
