The Wirecut EDM belongs to the family of non conventional machining methods. The material removal is produced by controlled electrical discharges between a work piece and a computer controlled 0.2mm diameter Brass wire.
NICHOL use a Wirecut EDM to manufacture Press tools, steel type inserts and produce tools for the companies in the pressing and stamping of metal componentry in the sheet metal industry.
With EDM machining we are not restricted by the material's hardness, so therefore are able to machine intricate shapes from most materials.
The largest work piece that will fit in our machines is 500mm X 400mm and up to 120mm deep.
Using CAD / CAM and other design tools, along with our years of experience in toolmaking we can assure you that your request for any tooling will be satisfied.
