Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM)
Intricate Cutting of Tungsten, Molybdenum & Tantalum
Because tungsten is a very hard material, conventional machining is often difficult or impossible. Midwest Tungsten Service utilizes Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) to overcome this difficulty.
EDM machining allows for intricate cutting with tight tolerances. EDM drilling allows MTS to create holes smaller and deeper than would otherwise be possible in tungsten. EDM is also used for the tapping (threading) of holes which is difficult not only in tungsten, but also in molybdenum and tantalum.
While not all machining can be accomplished via EDM, it is nonetheless a very useful method for creating parts from the refractory metals.
