Swiss Wire E.D.M.

Capabilities

Specializing in :
  •     Wire EDM Services
  •     Plunge (sinker) EDM Services
  •     Fine Hole EDM Services

 

Swiss Wire E.D.M. specializes in complex prototype & production work for the aerospace, medical, & commercial industries, with a particular capability for machining large components. Our proprietary technology allows us to EDM parts as tall as 48", and workpieces weighing up to 4500 pounds.

 

By contrast, they have a number of production contracts involving parts that are small enough, almost to be considered microscopic, with corner radii less than 0.001.

 

Many of the latest exotic alloys used in the aerospace industry such as titanium and molybdenum are much more easily machined with EDM than with conventional techniques. Their strong business partner relationships with approved CNC machining vendors provide your project with certified solutions that involve both conventional machining and EDM.

 

Their ISO 9001:2015, AS9100D, and NADCAP certifications make available mission critical services to manufacturers and engineers completing government, aerospace, and medical industry contracts unable to rely upon statements of "compliance to standards".

 

Since our founding in 1977, process, quality control, and innovation have always been paramount in our business' operations.

ISO 9001:2015, AS9100D,

and NADCAP Certification

The operating staff of our company has a mandate from top management not only to stay on the leading edge of technology, but also to ensure that Swiss Wire EDM is the leader in our industry for both quality and customer satisfaction. The certifications listed below are proof of this commitment.

 

Swiss Wire E.D.M.'s QMS Program will ensure that you, as our customer will get the best quality products "on-time", "every-time". The QMS program is adhered to by all members of management & operating staff, and is 3rd party audited to maintain certifications.

 

As of April 13, 2018, Swiss Wire E.D.M. has been certified to the ISO9001:2015 without design and AS9100D standard. We are delighted to serve our customers even better through the well-defined and documented procedures this certification requires. While we’ve always been committed to quality in our products and services, this certification ensures a more productive environment through faster identification and resolution of quality issues, among many other benefits.

Swiss Wire EDM, RAM &

Micro Hole Division

Responding to the exploding demand for close tolerance small hole features in aerospace, medical and other components, Makino has met the challenge with speed and innovation. This machine is capable of drilling fine holes as small as 0.004” (0.10mm) in diameter into any electrically conductive material with great speed and accuracy, with only certain depth/diameter ratio limitations. (Even smaller holes can be drilled on a custom basis.) The quality of these holes is outstanding. Size control is typically within 0.0005” (0.012mm) and finishes are smooth and burr-free. Hole patterns can be programmed to generate any practical layout, from single holes to an array of thousands.
