|The Differences Between the Wire EDM and Sinker EDM
|Dielectric liquids are often deionized water.
|Dielectric liquids are often hydrocarbon oils.
|As a tool electrode or cathode, a long tiny diameter wire formed of conductive metal is utilized instead of a die.
|A die made of conductive metal is utilized as a tool electrode or cathode to free electrons for spark production.
|The wire always has the same basic shape. As a result, wire EDM is unsuitable for generating 3-D contours. It is best for 2-D cutting.
|The die can be shaped into a complicated 3-D profile. Sinker EDM, as a result, may manufacture complicated forms and features on the job.
|The wire EDM machine is ready to use when the wire is in place. This makes it suitable for tasks that must be done rapidly.
|The dies of sinker EDM must come in a variety of forms. Because of this, they have to be made and shaped before the machining process, which takes time.
|It cannot generate any blind features. It is solely ideal for profile cutting with through holes.
|It can generate blind features, such as holes or cavities that are not open in the bottom end.
|It can only start machining from the edges. To begin Wire EDM at an intermediate place on the workpiece, a through hole (starter) must be fabricated using another operation for wire passage.
|It may begin machining anywhere on the workpiece, regardless of the presence or lack of an edge or through the hole.
|Wire EDM is often used for high- precision profile cutting, sample preparation, and separating or splitting off.
|Sinker EDM is often used for 3-D contouring, finishing, drilling, deburring, and other tasks.
