  2. The workpiece material, size, and shape, as well as the required precision and surface finish.
  3. The type of tooling and electrode material required.
  4. The capacity of the machine’s power supply and control system, and whether it is compatible with existing equipment.
  5. The size and weight of the workpiece and its suitability for the machine’s table size and load capacity.
  6. The availability and cost of consumable parts such as wires, filters, and dielectric fluids.
  7. The ease of programming and operation of the machine, and the availability of support and training.
  8. The reputation and service network of the manufacturer.
