Wire EDM

Share:


Got an un-millable shape?

Then spark-erode your part's more elusive cutting locations

Crow provides Wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) services for a variety of industries and applications.

You can Wire EDM your parts cleanly, up to 31.5"L x 23.2"W x 8.5", with thicknesses of 8.5" and 1100 lbs.

Manufacture Graphite Electrodes

You may also create your own graphite electrodes in-house for your specific RAM/Sinker EDM jobs using our mini-mill.

Typical lead times are 5 to 15 business days, with rush service available.

Your parts go through an exhaustive testing process and are inspected with a magnifying glass (or nearly so) for quality and accuracy; this includes both Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) and FabriVISION scanning of your parts.

Need to make some evasive cuts? See our capabilities table below then request a quote online or contact the Director of Sales.

“No one succeeds alone and no one fails alone. Pay attention to the people around you.”
