Wire EDM Machines
What is Wire EDM?
Wire electrical discharge machining cuts or shapes metal workpieces using a thin electrode wire controlled by a CNC. Sparks develop between the wire and the workpiece as a result of the electric current charging the wire, melting the workpiece's surface. Since the cutting wire never makes direct touch with the workpiece, neither the cutting path nor the shape of the material is altered. With its ability to produce intricate shapes, close tolerances, and superior surface finishes, wire EDM is perfect for hard and complex materials. However, mastering wire EDM is not simple. It requires expertise to ensure consistent, high-quality results. NOBLE leverages years of experience and innovation to unleash the potential of wire EDM, ensuring our customers receive the unparalleled solutions they deserve.
Our Wire EDM Process
NOBLE is a Wire EDM manufacturer with more than ten years of experience. Wire EDM is an erosion process rather than other subtractive processes that rely on cutting. Therefore, it has different surface properties that often depend on the number of passes (iterative cuts) to achieve the best finish. Our wire EDM process is as follows:
First pass (Rough Cut)
NOBLE Wire EDM suppliers can handle rougher surface preparations and quickly achieve designs with tolerances of +/- .002’. Meeting approximately 90% of Wire EDM parts requires only the first pass, but the tolerances are acceptable for many applications and surface finishing requirements.
Second pass (Finishing Cut)
For more advanced customer requirements, NOBLE Wire EDM manufacturers perform a more refined second-step process that can achieve tolerances up to +/- 0.0005” and a surface finish of 72 µin that is virtually indistinguishable to the naked eye.
Third pass (More Granular Details)
For the most delicate wire cuts and finest finishes required for highly sensitive applications such as medical device parts and aerospace parts. In the third step, NOBLE Wire EDM manufacturers will reduce the surface finish to 35 µin, which can basically exceed many customer expectations and requirements.

Wire EDM FAQs
What is a wire EDM?A
Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a precision machining process that uses a thin, electrically conductive wire to cut or shape materials. The wire is guided through the workpiece with computer-controlled movements, while an electrical discharge creates intense heat, melting and vaporizing the material. A dielectric fluid cools and flushes away debris. Wire EDM is ideal for hard and complex materials, allowing for intricate shapes, tight tolerances, and excellent surface finishes. However, it can be slower than other methods and requires skilled operators. It is commonly used in industries like aerospace, automotive, and medical device manufacturing.
What is conventional vs wire EDM?A
A CNC control device that can move the wire on a three-dimensional axis for greater flexibility controls the wire-cut EDM machine. Wire-cut EDM can be used to create more intricate patterns and smaller angles than conventional EDM. Complex cuts are possible with a more precise cutting technique.
Why is wire EDM so accurate?A
Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) achieves high accuracy due to several factors. Firstly, the wire used in EDM is extremely thin, typically ranging from 0.1 to 0.3 mm in diameter. This thinness allows for precise cutting and intricate shapes. Secondly, the wire EDM process is controlled by computer numerical control (CNC) systems, which provide precise and accurate movement of the wire along programmed paths. Additionally, the dielectric fluid used in wire EDM serves to cool the workpiece and flush away debris, ensuring a consistent and controlled machining environment. These factors, combined with the ability to program complex shapes, contribute to the exceptional accuracy achievable with wire EDM.
What is the difference between laser and wire EDM?A
The difference is speed. Up to 0.25′′ in thickness, laser cutting delivers quick cutting speeds. Even though wire EDM gives greater precision than laser cutting, it is frequently slower.
What materials can wire EDM cut?A
Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is capable of cutting a wide range of electrically conductive materials. These include but are not limited to metals such as hardened steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, copper, brass, and exotic alloys. Wire EDM is also effective in cutting conductive ceramics and some non-conductive materials with the aid of special techniques. This machining process is particularly advantageous for materials that are difficult to machine with conventional methods due to their hardness, toughness, or heat resistance. It finds applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, tool and die manufacturing, and medical device manufacturing, where precision, intricate shapes, and tight tolerances are required.
Can wire EDM cut plastic?A
Wire EDM machines can also cut through a variety of metal types with little effort because they can handle both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as polymers and rubber that aren't suited for conventional EDM machines.
Can wire EDM make holes?A
Yes, wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is capable of making holes. This process is often referred to as wire EDM drilling or EDM hole drilling. In EDM hole drilling, a small-diameter wire electrode is used to create precise, round holes in electrically conductive materials. EDM hole drilling is commonly used in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, and medical, where high precision and accuracy are required for applications such as cooling holes, ejector holes, and small-diameter holes in intricate components.
How thick is EDM wire?A
The diameter of the standard EDM wire is 0.25mm. Microwires can have diameters ranging from 0.15mm to 0.020mm. The wire diameter selected is determined by part properties such as corner radii, slot widths, thin-wall details, and geometry complexity.
