What’s so bad about ion? Well, for everyday use…there is nothing bad about ions. They are in the water you use every single day. But for industrial purposes, these ions act as impurities that can interfere with and even damage sensitive equipment. Using deionized water instead of tap water is crucial in many industries.
How EDM Cutting Technology is Helping to Create Innovative New Products
What is EDM? EDM (electrical discharge machining), also known as spark machining, is a manufacturing process used to obtain a specific desired shape in metal by applying electrical discharges(sparks). There are a few different types of EDM technology including sinker EDM, wire EDM, ram EDM and fast hole drilling EDM; all of which are primarily used for hard metals that would be very difficult to machine with alternative methods. Even though electrical discharge machining is ideal for hard-to-drill materials, it can also be used for softer metals.
