Maximum Work Size: 320mm x 400mm x thickness 400mm ※this is the maximum workable size for this machine. However, our shop regulations limit members to using this machine for a maximum of 4 hours at a time. This may place some additional constraints on the maximum workable size.

Wire size: diameter 0.18mm, molybdenum steel

Workable Materials: electrically conductive materials. steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, carbides, titanium, nickel, die-Steel, high speed steel, inconel, molybdenum, tantalum etc.

Work-types: only external machining. ※internal machining is not possible.

Data Formats: dxf data up to r12, txt data (g-code based data)

 

The wire acts as an electrode, and whilst fluid is sprayed over the work-piece, an electrical discharge occurs between the electrode and the work-piece. This precisely melts away sections of the work-piece.
