Wire EDM, also known as Electrical Discharge Machining, is a metal machining method that involves the use of a thin wire moved at high speed to cut and shape materials. This process is accomplished through the creation of sparks on the surface of the workpiece.
WHAT ARE EDM BILLETS?
A wire EDM billet is a component used in wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) machines. It serves as an electrode for cutting and shaping a thin metal wire.
The wire EDM process cuts through materials by generating sparks on the surface of the workpiece as a thin metal wire travels at high speed. The wire EDM billet is crucial for the successful execution of this process, particularly in precision cutting operations.
Using a ready-made wire EDM billet offers time savings and high quality. It provides the advantage of working with standard quality as it is manufactured from special materials and undergoes a specific heat treatment. Delivered pre-threaded, heat-treated (58-60 HRC), ground, and preferably with a pre-drilled starter hole, the wire EDM billet ensures efficient machining.
WHERE IS WIRE EDM BILLET USED?
Wire EDM blanks are utilized for various purposes in different industries. Some applications include screw thread rolling dies and combs, cutting tools, cold rolling rolls, cold extrusion punches, deep drawing dies, precision cutting dies, chipper knives, sections exposed to breakage, shear blades, flash removal dies, wood processing tools, and plastic molds with high abrasive properties.
