EDM Wire Tools

An EDM wire tool is used on EDM electrode machines to make graphite electrodes that will then be used on a conventional EDM machine. Diamond-coated wire tools are made from PCD materials or polycrystalline diamond particles. These synthetic mini diamonds are the toughest material in the world, providing the stability and strength needed for manufacturing tools.

How Do Wire EDMs Work?

Wire EDM is one of two main types of electrical discharge machining (EDM). Unlike conventional EDM, this process offers greater versatility for machining complex parts. The wire EDM process uses an electrically charged wire that moves 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. 

The wire EDM process can produce complex, intricate cuts required for small and highly detailed products that are too difficult or impossible for other cutting methods. This efficiency makes it a cost-effective cutting solution for cutting complicated components, ideal for producing low quantities or prototypes. Diamond-coated wire tools help guide the thin wire electrode that creates intricate cuts. The wire tool's diamond coating makes it highly wear-resistant and durable, producing clean and precise cuts on workpieces. Wire EDM machines work with many materials, including carbon steel, copper, carbide, and more.

Wire EDM services are used for a variety of components and parts, including:
  • Die components
  • Punches
  • Die blocks
  • Die inserts
  • Strippers
  • Punch holders
  • Form blocks and inserts
