The future of the automotive industry is based on quality research and development, optimised with innovative and cutting-edge precision engineering. Precision engineering has played a vital role in the growth of the global automotive industry. Vehicle manufacturers look to the precision engineering sector for innovative, modern and low-weight components in order to develop more advanced and fuel-efficient products.
1913 saw the development of the moving assembly line by Henry Ford, car production increased from one every 12 hours to one every one and a half hours. It was this revolutionary step in production techniques that started the mass production of vehicles and led to the automotive industry fast becoming one of the most important leading global economies.
Amdale has over 25 years experience in EDM Wire Erosion and we have continuously invested in the latest technology in this area. We currently have immediate available capacity in our EDM department.
How does Wire EDM work?
EDM stands for “Electrical Discharge Machine” whereby an electrical charge is applied to an electrode, a brass wire, copper, sterling, or graphite. The electrode then makes an electrical connection with the steel. A spark jumps from the electrode to the work piece and disintegrates the steel with a controlled electrical charge. This process happens thousands of times per second. The mirror image of the electrode is formed in the work piece.
