Conventional EDM

Conventional EDM is also referred to as Sinker EDM or Ram, and uses an electrically charged electrode to burn shapes and holes into metal components. The removed material is washed away by a continuous flush of dielectric fluid. This process is used for the most part in the tool and die industry. Materials of varying hardness or toughness can be machined in this way as long as they are electrically conductive. Aerospace and electronic applications also use EDM for materials that are difficult to work with, if they have small/odd... Read More

Positive Forms of Erosion

Hearing the term wire erosion can, to those unfamiliar with EDM, sound like a negative thing. When I think of erosion, I tend to think of it more in the terms of nature. This is a destructive event that occurs in nature where soil and rock are worn away by elements such as wind and water. They are moved from one place to another over a period of time. Such events have been able to carve out wonders such as the Grand Canyon, it has had negative developments as well... Read More

Unique or Perfection?

We are quickly approaching a world in which human work is less and less appreciated. If robots could do everything, I am pretty sure we would soon let them. Students are no longer allowed to write out assignments or hand draw graphs, it is computers only allowed. Paintings are bought less and less often, most choosing computer made posters or camera prints instead. Hand carved tables and chairs are quickly dismissed. It is easier to buy the factory made models, and cheaper as well. Soon, it will be a world... Read More

Sinker EDM and the Automotive Industry

On my drive to work (and anywhere else for that matter) I rarely think about how exactly my car works or all of the different parts that are required for it to function properly. I know there is a lot to it, and parts are manufactured in various places then sent to be assembled, but how do they make the parts? How much work is involved in each individual product? Most parts require quite a bit of work. One of the methods to make parts or the molds for parts... Read More

Sinkholes and Sinking Metal

Sinkholes can go by many names, sink, snake hole, swallow hole, wallet, doline or cenote. These products can be the cause of mankind or the natural environment and can occur suddenly or gradually. It is a hole in the surface of the earth and can be caused by karst or suffusion processes. They can be the result of excessive drainage or from sudden dryness. Basically what happens is something triggers an underground collapse, the material falls in and a sinkhole is the result. Some can be a pain like one... Read More

Sinker EDM

Sinker EDM, which goes by many names including conventional EDM, plunge EDM and ram EDM, produces parts by eroding materials in the path of the EDM tool using electrical discharges, or sparks that can generate heat anywhere from eight to twenty thousand degrees. One of the two major types of EDM, sinker EDM differs from its counterpart wire EDM in terms of the type of electrode used.

Sinker EDM, which goes by many names including conventional EDM, plunge EDM and ram EDM, produces parts by eroding materials in the path of the EDM tool using electrical discharges, or sparks that can generate heat anywhere from eight to twenty thousand degrees. One of the two major types of EDM, sinker EDM differs from wire EDM in terms of the type of electrode used. Common sinker EDM electrodes include machined graphite, copper tungsten and brass. Die sinking EDM is ideal for applications such as injection mold tooling, micro hole drilling, keyways, washers and scientific research apparatus. Unlike wire EDM which can only be used in the processing of 2D parts, sinker EDM has the capability of machining 3D pieces. It does not require the pre-drilling of a hole for the electrode and so can be used for more complex geometries. Consisting of an electrode and a work piece (the material being processed), the EDM electrode is used to generate a series of sparks and is connected to the work piece through a power supply. There is a highly conductive path established between the electrode and the work piece which creates an intense electric field the melts away the material. The electrodes and the work piece do not come into contact with each other; rather the dielectric bath conducts the current to melt away the material and then flushes away the unwanted debris.

Industries commonly served by electrical discharge machining include aerospace, medical, tool and die, automobile and military. One of the biggest advantages to using EDM machining is its ability to create complex and intricate parts with a high degree of accuracy. In CNC EDM processes, CNC machines are used to guide, monitor and control the EDM process, as well as CAD and CAM software. It can be applied to hard materials such as stainless steel, copper, graphite and other metals which are difficult to successfully machine with other conventional methods. Furthermore, as there is no contact between the machine tools and the work piece, there is less chance for process damage to the part. It is not deformed by impact or by heat, nor are there burrs which need to be removed through secondary machining. Sinker EDM is used for more complex geometries where electrodes are used to erode the desired shape into the part or assembly. Sinker EDM has another advantage over wire EDM in that sinker EDM does not necessarily cut all the way through the material, thus producing parts that wire EDM cannot.
