In addition to precision CNC milling and drilling, our capabilities at Gen-El-Mec Associates, Inc. include precision wire EDM services.
Wire EDM is an ideal choice for machining pre-hardened metals such as tool steels. Since the material is not subjected to mechanical machining, heat distortion and other loss in material properties is minimized or eliminated entirely. Wire diameters ranging from 0.004″ to 0.012″ can be used to cut precise features into the part and leave a very smooth micro-finish.
This often eliminates the need for additional machining or grinding operations. Our wire EDM is capable of machining parts up to 24″ x 16″ x 12″ that meets dimensional tolerances as tight as ± 0.0001″. With the addition of a Hirschmann Rotary Indexing table we have the ability of 5-axis, turn and burn capability. Our work varies in both material and application, but is typically low to medium in volume and requires the machining of complex geometries at tight tolerances.
Such precision work is only achievable through experience, advanced equipment, and a well trained staff. In July of 2012, we moved to a larger facility strategically located in a modern industrial park. The new location is climate controlled and set outside of the city, which is important in preventing interference from outside vibrations.
With the increased capacity gained from the new facility, we are capable of working with customer schedules and can accommodate rush orders. All jobs are quoted on a job by job basis with an emphasis on customer needs. For more information about our precision wire EDM services, see the table below, or contact us directly.
