What's EDM Wire ?
A thin single-strand metal wire, usually brass, is fed through the workpiece, typically occurring submerged in a tank of dielectric fluid, which is typically deionised water.
In wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM), also known as wire-cut EDM and wire cutting,a thin single-strand metal wire, usually brass, is fed through the workpiece, typically occurring submerged in a tank of dielectric fluid, which is typically deionised water.
This EDM wire process is not typically used to produce complex 3D geometries.It is instead typically used to cut plates as thick as 300mm and to make punches, tools,and dies from hard metals that are too difficult to machine with other methods.
The wire EDM, which is constantly fed from a spool, is held between upper and lower diamond guides.
EDM wire Scrap recycle Value
For thousands of years, copper and copper alloys have been recycled.
This has been a normal economic practice, even if regretted by some.
One of the wonders of the old world, the Colossus of Rhodes, a statue spanning the entrance to Rhodes Harbour, was said to have been made of copper.
No trace of it remains since it was recycled to make useful artefacts.
In the Middle Ages it was common that after a war the bronze cannons were melted down to make more useful items.
In times of war even church bells were used to produce cannon.
The entire economy of the copper and copper alloy industry is dependent on the economic recycling of any surplus products.
There is a wide range of copper based materials made for a large variety of applications.
To use the most suitable and cheapest feedstock for making components gives the most economic cost price for the material.
