EDM Wire & Plunge

In addition to being a machine and fabricating shop, we are also one of the Houston area’s Best Electrical Discharge Machining or EDM shops.

Also known as spark machining, wire burning, and wire erosion, this is a metal fabrication process. It uses electrical discharges (or sparks) to shape a variety of materials with complex patterns.  While not a very fast process the flexibility in this technology allows for very close tolerance complex features that would have difficulty or simply cannot be achieved through traditional processes.

Wire EDM uses a wire (typically ranging from .004”-.012” diameters) that must pass through the part to create (or burn) the necessary feature.   

Plunge EDM uses a graphite or other conducting electrode that is pre-machined close to the detail dimensions it will be creating.  This process is typically used in applications where the wire process cannot, as the detail does not pass through the part. 

Gun Drilling

Gun drilling is a specialized method of deep hole drilling which utilizes a long, thin tool (gun drill) to produce holes in metal that have high depth-to-diameter ratios.

The gun drilling process was originally used for machining gun barrels, but is now utilized in a variety of other industries/products:

 Oil-Gas components

  • Refinery equipment
  • Medical tooling
  • Die-making
  • Mold-making
