Hole making is considered the most frequently performed metalworking operation. Hole making on a micro level, say 0.010 inch and smaller, is where it gets interesting. This shop is very good at making small holes.
This controller uses fiber-optic cables to overcome major hurdles in monitoring EDM spark output, improving wire life and reducing voltage consumption.
Current EDM has released the CT400 CNC hole drilling machine designed for toolroom and production drilling applications.
Specializing in Small Hole EDM Drilling, Ocean Technologies excels at applications ranging from simple wire start holes to full five-axis EDM drilling applications.
Removing the microscopic particles made during the wire EDM cutting process becomes a key factor in maximizing cutting speed as well as attaining part accuracy and surface finish. Dielectric fluid is the mechanism for flushing these “chips” away.
Makino’s EDBV3 is an EDM drilling machine designed to produce cooling film holes in blade and vane turbine engine component details.
What kind of surface finish can the purchaser of a wire EDM expect with today’s technology?
