What is Wire EDM Cutting?

Wire EDM Cutting is our specialty, it’s in our name! But what exactly is Wire EDM Cutting anyway? And what does EDM stand for? Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a manufacturing process that uses electric sparks to create a metal shape. The desired shape is cut from the metal when current discharges, or sparks, occur between two electrodes. Cuts are made into the metal where the sparking occurs, creating the desired shape and detaching it from the metal sheet.
