  • About Spark Erosion

    Spark Erosion, sometimes known as EDM (Electrical discharge machining)or Metal Disintegration is a process whereby a desired shape is machined using electrical discharges (sparks).Material is removed from the work piece by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between the electrode, which is held in the tool holder on the cutting head, and the broken/siezed stud. Spark Eroding can be used on all types of steel including very hard hi alloy content material.(This allows us to cut through broken “Easy Outs”/”Stud Extractors” with ease)
