Spark Erosion (EDM)

We're Also Wired for EDM

Wire electro-discharge machining (EDM) for spark erosive machining of all conductive materials regardless of hardness. Wire EDM provides sharp edges and meets highest demands of dimensional accuracy and precise contouring. Advanced die sinking EDM permits delicate, complex and three-dimensional geometries. In most cases, the electrode is made of graphite, in individual cases of copper. Where mechanical machining reaches its limits, toolcraft relies on the power of electro-erosive manufacturing.

In order to meet the tightest tolerances and the highest demands of quality and precision, our production floor space is air-conditioned, and our measuring department uses advanced metrology for validating our precision components.
