Wire Erosion

Wire erosion is the process were a metallic wire (electrode) is used to cut a programmed contour in a work-piece. Each electrical discharge creates a crater in the work-piece to remove material. The wire can be inclined, making it possible to create components with taper or differing profiles at the top & bottom of the work-piece.

Working repeatedly to tolerances of 3-5 microns of accuracy.



Wire Erosion

First Components Limited wire erosion with our Charmilles Robofil 290 wire eroder. This precision cutting wire eroder allows for work in a variety of materials to include aluminium, steel, tool steels, uddeholm tool steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper, titanium or specialised alloys. Applications include components for automotive and aerospace industries and precision general engineering.
