Tips For Using WEDM In Mold Making
The tool and die manufacturing industry is an almost perfect fit for the CNC wire cut EDM. The punches and die blocks that accept them can now be made to fit with incredible accuracy. The cutting parameters on the WEDM are so predictable and able to be controlled that very complex shapes and contours can be routinely manufactured.
If you were to ask an older tool and die maker or mould maker if they miss those days, I seriously doubt many would cast a nostalgic glance backwards for very long. The WEDM has relieved a lot of the stress that was once ever present in a tool room.
