Strutting our ‘Wire EDM’ Stuff

A picture is worth 1,000 words, seeing is believing and show ’em, don’t tell ’em!

Any way you ‘slice’ it, everyone loves a solid image, especially when it comes to showing off Peridot’s precision manufactured wares!  Starting today and taking place over the next 6-12 months, Peridot will be adding pictures, specifications and details for everything from Laser processing to CNC machining.  So, be sure to check back often.

The first machining process we’re showing off is Wire EDM, a capability Peridot has proudly offered our customers for the last 15 years. Wire EDM (Electrcial Discharge Machining) is a non contact machining process suitable for all conductive materials. Submerged cutting conditions result in a thermally stable process with minimal HAZ (Heat affected zone). EDM is capable of holding tighter tolerance than conventional chip producing machining processes and tolerances of +- .0002 inch are routinely held. The ability to stack and cut multiple parts at once in the same pass makes EDM an economical choice as well. Peridot’s Fine Wire (down to .004 inch) capability  eneables the production of incredibly small feature size not producible on any other process. With 5 Auto-Threading submersible multi-axis machines in service 5 days a week 24 hrs a day Peridot is a leading provider of EDM services.
