EDM Machining Equipment

Some of the EDM machining equipment used by professional companies includes machines by: GBI Cincinnati, Elox, Japax, and Mitsubishi. All top-quality EDM machining equipment provide the same basic functionality, with the differences between each model being specific features.

User-interface, number and gauges of wires, and the tank size where machining is actually done are just some of the features that differentiate each model .

For example, the professionals at IDS Machining use the following EDM machining equipment and inspection tools:

Sodick AQ35L - Wire EDM Machine

The Sodick AQ-35L Wire EDM is a fast precision EDM machine that provides the dynamic response of linear technology - high speed machining in less time has become an economically efficient reality.

It features linear drive technology and simplified control mechanisms, which provide a direct link between the drive and the control.

Sodick AM3L Sinker EDM Machine

The Sodick AM3L Sinker EDM Machine is an ultra fast linear machine that drives to the left and right of the z axis reach feed rates of 36 m/min and are completely balanced to facilitate precise, frictionless, rapid travel for the machine head.

The integrated cooling system further enhances thermal stability and precision.

A good machining shop should also have the following types of equipment to further machining capabilities. Again, this equipment list is taken from IDS Machining:
