Extremely Precise Machining
Rapid Drilling Capabilities with High Precision & Accuracy
EDM hole drilling works on the same technical principles as wire EDM processing. However, instead of wire, EDM hole drilling uses an electrically-charged metallic electrode tool that works much like a traditional drill bit for hole machining.
The material being worked serves as the second electrode, and electrical discharge between the workpiece and the tool creates sparks that rapidly cut away material. There is no physical contact between the tool and the workpiece; therefore, no cutting forces are involved. This enables extremely high dimensional accuracy and results in drilled holes with fine finishes that require no additional work to remove burrs or smooth the surface.

Industries and Innovations: Who Uses Wire EDM?
Wire EDM-manufactured parts are everywhere, touching every part of our lives. Starting a car, boarding an airplane, or booting up a laptop are all possible thanks to electrical discharge machining.
For instance, Wire EDM makes it possible to cut steel without treating it with heat first. As a result, EDM manufacturing is a preferred choice for medical device manufacturers who make life-saving instruments out of carbon steel.
Because EDM drilling makes it possible to create very small holes, EDM is used often in the production of circuit boards. The military and aerospace industries also rely on Wire EDM manufacturing to produce parts for essential equipment. Even automotive manufacturers turn to Wire EDM for its precision and efficiency.
In addition to these applications, EDM machining is also found in:
- Small volume productions
- Mold and die manufacturing
- Metal components manufacturing
- Applications that require low residual stress
