Wire EDMMac Machine Company has proudly provided our clients with precision aerospace and medical diagnostics components since 1976. Since our inception, our team has continuously adopted the latest advances in manufacturing and fabrication processes. Our customers turn to us for specialized capabilities and reliable results.

Our wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) capabilities include lights-out production that maximizes efficiency and output. For our clients, this translates to reliably low costs and quick turnaround times regardless of project specifications.

Wire EDM Capabilities

Wire EDM is a reductive manufacturing process that removes material from a workpiece using recurring electrical charges between two electrodes. As such, this process is also frequently referred to as spark machining or spark eroding.

At Mac Machine Company, we rely on advanced wire EDM machines to meet the needs of our customers. Our wire EDM capabilities are as follows:

  • Equipment
    At Mac Machine, we maintain several wire EDM machines, offering us wire EDM capabilities on a variety of part types and sizes. Our wire EDM equipment includes:
    • Makino U6 HEAT
    • Makino U6 HEAT Extreme
    • Makino U3 HEAT with 4th axis
    With the above equipment, our trained staff can typically achieve tolerances within 0.0001 inches.
  • Applications
    At Mac Machine, our wire EDM services support clients in a variety of industries. Some of the most common applications include:
    • Flat work and tapers for medical projects
    • Card slots in circuit board housings
    • Internal and external gears and splines
    • Bulk metal removal of thru-the-part slugs
  • Materials
    Wire EDM processes require the material of the workpiece to be conductive. As such, the most common materials we work with for wire EDM projects include:
    • Aluminum
    • Copper
    • Stainless steel
    • Titanium
