Manufactured in Taiwan and distributed throughout the United States, the W-EDM S series of CNC wire EDMs from Kaast delivers surface quality combined with technologies to help keep production efficient. Automatic corner control contributes to high geometric accuracy during production. Automatic wire tension monitoring helps to ensure that tools are machined quickly without sacrificing precision. The machine is equipped with a 64-bit CNC with 2D/3D graphics for six-axis machining of complex forms.

The automatic wire threading (AWT) option (0.006" to 0.012" copper wire with a water jet 0.04" in diameter) further saves production time.

  • Wire EDM In The Extreme

    Cutting metal with an energized strand of wire is still one of the most dynamic frontiers in metalworking, and this shop goes to extremes to keep up with the latest advances. It has even developed some of its own.

  • The Hidden Cost Of EDM Wire Consumption

    Excessive wire consumption on a wire electrical discharge machine is costly. Technology that allows slower unspooling speeds without compromising results appears to be the answer.

  • Exploring Niches With New EDM Technologies

    A shop specializing in wire EDM for large mold components now offers EDM “turning” of small, intricate parts. Despite the potential risks involved in early adoption of new technologies, the shop believes this practice gives it a leg-up on the competition and lets it gain experience with alternative machining techniques before offering them to customers.
