EDM Machines Used for the Most Precise Tools and Molds
Retlaw EDM Machines for Manufacturing
Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a process in which material is removed from a consumable using thermal energy. The charged graphite transfers its charge to the steel mold material, and the sparks erode the steel to create opposite shapes required to create the tooling.
In order to control the spark, the electrode is submerged in an insulating liquid, often de-ionized water or oils. The electrode is kept at a consistent distance from the work piece and the dielectric fluid surrounding it prevents short circuiting.
