Inverse Solutions Inc. is continuously looking for new and innovative ways to serve our customers from the Aerospace and Defense Industries. The new Wire EDM machine satisfies the most recent request from our customers and is the next logical step in our service line. This has positioned Inverse Solutions Inc. to offer our customers a full suite of prototype and manufacturing precision machining services.
About Wire EDM processing. Wire Electrical Discharge Machining is a high-precision method for cutting almost any material that is electrically conductive. A wire as thin as .004 in diameter can be used.
The electrically-charged EDM wire is held between upper and lower mechanical guides to form one electrode. The material being cut forms the second electrode. Electrical discharge between the wire and the workpiece creates sparks that rapidly cut away material.
Submerging the work piece and wire in deionized water flushes away any cutting debris. As the charged wire never makes physical contact with the workpiece in EDM, there are no cutting forces involved. This makes it possible to manufacture extremely small and delicate parts.
Parts that require levels of accuracy and intricacy that traditional machining cannot achieve can easily be produced via Wire EDM.
Advantages of Wire EDM Machining.
- Precision – when you need highly accurate machining, Wire EDM is an excellent option for manufacturing delicate and intricate parts.
- Tapers – Wire EDM machining is useful for cutting long tapers that other machining methods cannot produce.
- Accurate Internal Cuts – square-edged internal cuts are difficult to produce with other methods of machining. However, Wire EDM makes this possible.
- Better results – Wire EDM is capable of producing parts that do not have burrs. It creates a better surface finish than other forms of manufacturing.
Materials that are Wire EDM-compatible.
- Carbon Graphite
- Carbon Steel
