Light Step: Sinker EDM becomes more efficient

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Equipment and Tooling, Machining

In the world of sinker EDMing, less is definitely more. Smaller-footprint machines that run cooler and new technology that reduces electrode wear have made sinker EDMing more efficient. Also, better flushing and “just-in-time” electrode production is allowing some EDMing operations to expand lights-out machining, making the technology more competitive with hard milling. Replacing bulky, hot-running […]
