This method is valued for its ability to handle a range of material thicknesses, making it a preferred choice for industries requiring fast and precise metal cutting for diverse applications.

Wire Erosion

Wire electrical discharge machining (Wire EDM) is a precision machining process that employs electrical discharges to shape and cut conductive materials. In this method, a thin, electrically charged wire, typically made of brass or tungsten, serves as an electrode. The wire is carefully guided through the workpiece, creating controlled electrical discharges that erode the material. This technique is renowned for its exceptional accuracy in producing intricate and complex shapes in materials such as metals and alloys. Wire EDM is particularly valued in industries requiring high-precision components, such as aerospace, medical, and toolmaking. The process allows for tight tolerances and fine finishes, and its non-contact nature minimises mechanical stresses on the workpiece. Additionally, Wire EDM can efficiently handle hard materials, making it a versatile and indispensable technology for achieving precise and intricate geometries in various manufacturing applications.

MIG Welding (Steel/Aluminium)

MIG welding, or Metal Inert Gas welding, is a widely used and versatile welding process. It involves the use of a consumable wire electrode that melts and fuses with the workpieces, creating a strong and durable weld. The process is characterised by the use of a shielding gas, which protects the weld pool from atmospheric contaminants, ensuring clean and high-quality welds and it is known for its efficiency, speed, and applicability to various materials, making it suitable for a range of industries. The process is employed in diverse applications, from automotive and construction to fabrication and manufacturing.
