6 Ways EDM Enables Better Part and Tool Design

Textbooks portray design and manufacture as a linear process, but in reality it’s more iterative. Features, tolerances and materials specified by Engineering Challenge Manufacturing, who respond by requesting design changes. Reasoned discussion usually leads to better choices, but ultimately the product must function the way the designer wants. In such situations the only solution may…

Types of EDM Machining (What, Why, When)

EDM uses thermal erosion to remove small bits of conductive metal using repeated electrical discharges between the cutting tool, which functions as the electrode, and the piece itself in the presence of a dielectric fluid. The voltage discharge occurs in the gap between the cutting tool and the piece, and the heat essentially vaporizes small…
