Wire EDM capabilities are rare—and CF Extrusion Technologies has them. Our services include the design and production of dies, gear-cutting tools, and molds for all brands of extrusion equipment.
Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) is an electro thermal manufacturing process that uses an electrically charged thin metal wire and deionized water to mill or cut conductive materials. An electrical discharge produces heat and sparks which cut the metal and prevents oxidization.
Electrical Discharge Machining Specifications:
- Micromachining tolerances: .0008” - .001”
- Maximum cut thickness: 20”
- Machine travel (XY axis LSM-drive): 31.5” x 23.6” x 20.1”
- Max workpiece weight: 6,800 lbs.
Our in-house MV4800 Mitsubishi Wire EDM machine is built for accuracy and performance and can cut thicknesses up to 20 inches. This unit is accurate within 1 micrometer and can hold up to 6,800 pounds. The process is ideal for precise machining of complex parts from hard metals that would be difficult to produce using traditional techniques.
