EDM sinking and micro-sinking in Brindas - STEEC
Micro-machined and drilled parts by electro-erosion in the Rhône for the medical, aerospace, research and nuclear sectors
This modern machining technology offers many advantages over more conventional processes.
STEEC provides its customers with its know-how in EDM and EDM in the Rhône.
The principle of this machining process is the same as for wire EDM, with the difference that the tool used for cutting is no longer a wire but an electrode shaped according to the desired precision machining. The workpiece and the tool (electrode) are therefore not in contact, it is an electric arc formed between the electrode and the workpiece that machines the latter. This is also known as spark erosion.
The workpiece must be conductive in order to be machined using this technique. This is a prerequisite for the use of this process.
This lack of contact between the tool and the workpiece allows EDM machining of very hard materials such as titanium.
This process also allows a great flexibility in the variety of shapes machined knowing, STEEC makes most of its machining electrodes itself. STEEC can therefore respond to a very wide range of customer requests. Thanks to the very high precision micro EDM process, STEEC is able to offer its customers machining services for blind and complex shapes with tight tolerances. The smallest EDM diameter that can be achieved is in the range of 30 microns to a few microns.
This technology can be used in all sectors of industry thanks to the very good surface finish and the resulting high precision. Micro drilled parts can be found in the medical, aerospace, nuclear and research sectors.
