EDM Hole Popping Capabilities
Wire Tech EDM, Inc. uses EDM hole popping technology to drill small holes in a variety of types of parts. EDM hole popping is perfect for fast, accurate, and deep hole drilling applications. Small holes once impossible to drill by conventional machine tools are now performed with EDM. EDM has the capability of drilling through any conductive material.
We can put wire safety holes in parts where the hole goes through a slanted or curved surface. We can drill a .015 diameter hole in a nozzle where conventional drilling would be impossible. We can machine wire safety holes or starter holes in parts where the hole is at an angle or on a curved surface and conventional drilling would be exceptionally difficult. Precise hole patterns can be machined per specification and in most applications diameter tolerances can be held to +/- .001
Wire Tech EDM hole drilling is on the leading edge for micro hole, small hole, and fast hole drilling. We specialize in small hole EDM and EDM Hole burning. This capability compliments our wire EDM machines by generating starter holes through seemingly impossible to drill through material thicknesses. This greatly reduces EDM machining cost and turnaround time.
Our machines are CNC controlled allowing us to burn hole patterns with close locational tolerances. We have the option to use a Single Hole or a Coreless (Multi-holed) electrode allowing us to complete and excel in blind hole manufacturing without leaving excess material at the bottom of the hole. Another specialty is angle small hole EDM Machining. Parts that call for a slanted hole, on a specified angle, or on a curved surface where conventional drilling would not be possible, are perfect for EDM hole popping.
