Do you really know what EDM is?

Maybe you are exposed to EDM daily in production, but do you know much about EDM? First of all, do you know how EDM technology came about? In 1943, when Lazarenko and his wife, academicians of the former Soviet Union Academy of Sciences, studied the phenomenon and causes of spark discharge corrosion damage to switch…

Why is it difficult to process titanium by wire cutting?

If you want to CNC machining titanium, people often need more time to think about how to machine titanium alloys will be easier. Because it has always been challenging to process titanium alloys by wire cutting, wire cutting is the best processing method. So why is it challenging to process titanium alloys by wire cutting? To solve…

Application of EDM Technology in Die Manufacturing

For workpieces with complex structures, traditional cutting methods are often difficult to achieve. Therefore, some new methods have been developed in production. EDM is one of them, and it is widely used in the processing of cavities in the mold manufacturing industry. EDM technology is a new process that directly utilizes electrical and thermal energy…

Is High-speed Milling Really “Omnipotent”? So Is Wire EDM Still Useful?

In recent years, there has been a voice in the mold manufacturing industry that high-speed milling will replace Wire EDM, which leads some factory owners to make irrational choices when investing in equipment. Factories should find out the advantages and disadvantages of these two technologies, choose the appropriate equipment according to their own processing needs,…

5 Ways to Prevent the Broken Wire Cutting Fast Wire

At present, the electrode wire EDM used in domestic fast wire cutting machine tools include molybdenum wire, tungsten wire, tungsten and molybdenum wire, etc. Due to the high tungsten wire price, molybdenum wire is mainly used for production operations. The wire conveying mechanism controls the average speed of wire conveying at about 8m/s and is installed on…
