WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.

The capacities of present day equipment are quite advanced:

  • High cutting speed and removal
  • Extremely efficient automatic operation
  • Interlinking and storage of very long and recurring machining cycles
  • Practically one hundred percent monitoring of the final shape and surface of the metals being machined - from dead smooth to extremely rough.

Thanks to these special properties, EDM is regarded as the technology with great prospects for the future. The animation shown comes from a CAM system that automatically designs the electrode from the electronic data. This is quite a technological achievement.
