Trusted Machined Parts Supplier
If you are searching for urgent EDM machined parts, A&M are a trusted supplier, working closely with each customer on their requirements and advising on the right commercial solution.
Over 30 Sodick machines include green technology to reduce power consumption, the spark and wire eroders shut down as soon as a job is completed, helping us to meet Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2015.
We have a dedicated Sodick trained maintenance engineer in-house delivering preventative maintenance and ensuring all machines are calibrated for optimum performance.
Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Frequently Asked Questions
During the electrical discharge machining process, a workpiece is submerged in a dielectric fluid. An electrode is then used to produce an electric spark between itself and the workpiece, melting localised areas of the workpiece through thermal energy. This process happens hundreds of thousands of times per second, breaking down the workpiece to produce a desired shape.
Electrical discharge machining occurs through methods such as wire EDM, die sinking EDM, and hole drilling EDM.
