Electro Discharge Machining
Waveney Precision Limited are one of very few specialist precision engineering companies in Norfolk/Suffolk that has the capacity and expertise to provide both EDM wire and EDM Sinking capabilities.
What Is Electro Discharge Machining?
Electro Discharge Machining or EDM as it is also known as a method in which material is removed from a workpiece using thermal energy. Very similar to laser cutting, EDM does not need any mechanical force as part of its removal process.
To be put more simply EDM is a manufacturing process that precisely removes material from a conductive material using an electrode. Controlled on a 5 axis, EDM technology enables the economic production of complex forms that cannot conventionally be produced in a single piece.
This non-contact process ensures no stress is placed on the component, enabling high tolerances to be achieved, avoiding distortion and leaving a surface that requires minimal additional finishing.
