PTM Corporation’s Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) department goes hand in hand with our commitment to technology. We currently have 5 Fanuc wire EDM machines complete with Erowa pallet systems. These pallet systems enable us to run lights out machining 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These machines are used to cut the individual die details that will make up the completed stamping die, and form the part to shape.
EDM Machines create an electrical discharge between a thin wire or electrode and the work piece. As the discharge spark jumps across the gap, material is removed from both the work piece and the wire. A non conductive liquid prevents the process from shorting out and also flushes out the removed material. The result is a highly accurate and efficient process. We can wire EDM details as large as 14″ x 20″ x 12″ thick.
Our Wire EDM machines are also equipped with the latest in Fanuc cutting software to ensure the fastest, most accurate wire technology available. This means faster turn around time for you, the customer. Don’t forget to check out our wire EDM video!
