5-axis edm-wire cutting

EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) Wire Cutting involves cutting profiles in conductive materials using thin brass wire (0.1-0.25 mm in diameter). EDM is an exceptionally accurate process and is used for high-precision engineering applications.

Hand-On Industries operates a Sodick VL400Q a fully submerged linear drive EDM Wire Cutter which has taper cut and 5th-axis capabilities.

Utilising innovative fixturing and precision-prepared blanks, Hand-On Industries can create a vast array of wire-cut parts that commonly surpass client’s expectations.
