Cost-Effective EDM: Smart Spending, Great Results

Better EDM machining processes tap into a range of unexpected benefits. Instead of facing production delays while waiting for an outsourced roughing project or stripped screw removal, our affordable EDM machines empower your team to manage a greater range of intricate project types. 

With our ultra-efficient tap burner, you shield your bottom line from several production risk factors. Our optimized electrical discharge sinker never makes physical contact with the workpiece, resulting in reduced material waste, a safer workplace, and ease of producing intricate hex and cylindrical components without exposing your tools or the component to traumatic impact forces. 

Even if you already have a fully capable CapEx sinker or Bridgeport setup, the EDM-101 is the perfect addition to any shop. Instead of halting production to handle a basic tap removal or part roughing task, utilize our cost-saving EDM machine to handle all entry-level sinker projects with precision. These useful application benefits also apply to tech school demonstrations, reduced time-to-market, and ultimately, superior quality components made from any conductive material.

We welcome discussion about your unique needs.

What is Electrical Discharge Machining & How Does it Work?

EDM is a non-conventional machining method that relies on electrical discharges to remove material from a workpiece. It’s the go-to choice when you need to produce, extract, or repair intricate components from extremely hard conductive materials like steel and titanium. Unlike grinders and mills that rely on physical force to shape a part, EDM innovation shapes parts with thermal energy that transfers between an electrode and the conductive material being machined. 

First, an appropriate electrode is mounted on the quill-mounted EDM-101 Head, the operator enters basic objective parameters into our user-friendly tablet app.  When the workpiece material is fixtured by the machinist/operator followed by setup of flushing nozzle the EDM process can commence.

Once the program commences, the electrode moves downward in Sinker fashion. Simultaneously, a dielectric water submersion/stream is applied to facilitate thermal energy transfer, cool the workpiece, and flush eroded debris away from the workpiece in the shape of the electrode.

After the operation is complete, the machinist cleans and inspects the part for defect-free accuracy.
