What is EDM Die Sinking Machine?
EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) die sinking machine is a type of machine tool that uses electrical discharges (sparks) to erode material from a workpiece, to create a shape or a hole with a high level of precision and accuracy. EDM die sinking machines are typically used to produce dies and molds that are used in the production of plastic, metal, and other parts.
EDM die sinking machines typically consist of two main components: the power supply and the workpiece holder. The power supply generates the electrical discharges that erode the material, while the workpiece holder holds the workpiece in place and controls its position during the machining process.
The workpiece is submerged in a dielectric fluid, which acts as an insulation and a coolant, and also flushes away the material that is being removed from the workpiece by the electrical discharge. The material is removed by repeatedly passing a thin wire, called the electrode, through the workpiece in the shape that is desired, and then controlled electrical discharges are used to erode the material away.
EDM die sinking machines are highly accurate and can produce very precise shapes, with tight tolerances and fine surface finishes, it’s especially useful for producing complex shapes that would be difficult or impossible to create using conventional machining methods.
EDM die sinking machines are widely used in the die and mold making, aerospace and medical industries where precision and accuracy are of the highest importance. They are also used in the production of small complex parts and in the machining of hard materials that are difficult to machine with conventional methods.
Overall, EDM die sinking machine is a specialized machine tool that uses electrical discharges to erode material from a workpiece with high precision and accuracy. It’s commonly used to produce dies and molds, especially for complex shapes and hard materials, for various industries
