Wire EDM information

Makino Wire EDM

The Makino Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), is a High Precision cutting machine. Using an electrically charged wire, it is capable of 4 axis cutting. It utilises the U V head offset for tapered sides up-to 35deg, while also being able to trace profiles accurately. The Makino Wire EDM operates through material thickness, with Z height fixed throughout process.
