Precision Machining Industry News and Tips

Multi-Axis Machining

edm machiningIn today’s high tech industry, the complexity of designs and the composition of base materials is often beyond the capabilities of traditional machining. This is where our EDM machines step in with electrical discharge cutting methods to produce incredibly precise, burr-free components for the most demanding of applications. The ability to cut extremely hard materials with precision and no cutter induced residual stresses has proven to be an attractive option for today’s aerospace market.

We offer three variations of EDM machining, depending on your application and needs.

QC-2As machining capabilities continue to improve and become more precise, it is vital that quality control systems keep up. This is particularly true in the Aerospace and defense industries where verification of conformance and traceability are a must.

All quality assurance processes, when working for the world’s most demanding industries such as aerospace, medical, and more, need to verify that each machined component meets the technical requirements as well as full traceability of feature chararitics such as:

  • True position
  • GD & T form controls such as parallel, perpendicular, and profile.
  • Surface roughness characteristics such as Ra, Rz, Rt, Rq, Ry, and more…
  • Final dimensional verification down to .0001”
