5 axis edm-wire cutting

EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) Wire Cutting involves cutting profiles in conductive materials using thin brass wire [0.1-0.25 mm]. EDM is a highly accurate process and is used for high precision engineering applications.

Hand-On Industries operates a Sodick VL400Q, a fully submerged linear drive EDM Wire Cutter that has taper cut and 5th axis capabilities.

Utilising innovative fixturing and precision prepared blanks, Hand-On Industries can create a vast array of wire cut parts that will surpass client’s expectations.
