Wire EDM, Sinker EDM & Small Hole Drilling
At Omega, we are experts in the EDM field, and recognize the special capability that this very accurate machining process affords. Any part made of conductive material can be EDMed to tolerances as close as 0.0001” in any shape.
Capabilities of our Wire EDM Machines:
Wire EDM is a process where a brass wire is charged with electricity that erodes or cuts a path through a metal piece. This flexible and very accurate process can create parts that are simple or complex in design with great accuracy
Sinker EDM, Conventional EDM, RAM EDM, Plunge EDM and Die-Sinker are all names for the same process. The Sinker EDM process is very ideal for a wide variety of applications. At Omega we often use this process to create simulated weld flaws for Ultra Sonic Testing Equipment. It can also be used for any parts with:
Any conductive material such as Aluminum, Brass, Carbide, Copper, Hastelloy, Inconel, Kovar, Stainless Steel, Tool Steels, and Titanium can be machined using Sinker EDM. This is not a comprehensive list, but shows that many metals can be machined using this process.
Small Hole Drilling
This is a process that allows us to put straight holes in any conductive material using EDM technology. These holes have a diameter ranging from 0.006” to 0.130”. This is ideal for long straight holes that are difficult to drill otherwise. It is effective in commonly used metals such as steel, aluminum, and copper as well as exotic materials such as Superalloys, Carbide, Hastelloy, Inconel, Refractaloy, Titanium, and Stainless Steels that are more difficult to drill.
