Electrical Discharge Machining, or EDM is one of the most accurate manufacturing processes available for creating complex or simple shapes and geometries within parts and assemblies. EDM works by eroding material in the path of electrical discharges that form an arc between an electrode tool and the work piece. EDM manufacturing is quite affordable and a very desirable manufacturing process when low counts or high accuracy is required. Turn-around time for EDM at Davis Tool is often very quick.
Davis Tool uses both wire and sinker type EDM equipment to create features which cannot be machined into a part, such as hexagonal holes or undercuts. 4-axis wire EDM machines cut different profiles in the top and bottom of a cut. Davis Tool has customized several machines for other specialized applications.
