EDM Wire Tools
Diamond coated wire tools are made from PCD materials or polycrystalline diamond particles. These are synthetic mini diamonds that are the toughest material in the world, and they provide the stability and strength needed for manufacturing tools.
In order to manufacture precise, detailed parts, EDM wire tools made from PCD materials provide the additional strength you need. McWilliams provides diamond coated wire tools for your wire EDM machines.
How Wire EDM Works
Wire EDM is one of two main types of electrical discharge machining (EDM). Unlike conventional EDM, this process provides greater versatility. Wire EDM services are used for a variety of components and parts, including:
- Die components
- Die blocks
- Die inserts
- Punch holders
- Form blocks and inserts
The wire EDM processes work through an electrically-charged wire that is moved through a series of guides. The wire releases a sequence of electrical discharges. The heat from the electrical sparks is so hot that it can melt away a microscopic amount of workpiece material, allowing intricate cuts in very hard materials. Wire EDM machines work with many materials, from carbon steel to copper to carbide.
The wore EDM process provides difficult, intricate cuts that are needed for small or highly detailed products. It also is an ideal method for producing low quantities or prototypes because of its cost-effectiveness.
