Electric Discharge Machining (EDM), a process where electric current is used to cut precision shapes. Also known as spark machining or wire erosion, the EDM operator uses computer controlled machinery that passes an electrical charge through brass wire and through the material being cut to remove the excess stock for the finished shape or part. EDM is used when traditional CNC methods are too cost prohibitive or difficult because of their tight tolerances. EDM cutting is not for high volume production where stamping machines or precision axis machining would be better suited.
