How to Improve Cycle Time When Creating Wire EDM Starter Holes
Using wire erosion to create starter holes in mold plates made of high-strength alloyed tool steels can be time consuming. Coated carbide micro deep hole drills manufactured by Sphinx Tools can reliably create wire EDM starter holes up to 5x faster than traditional wire erosion techniques. Micro Deep Hole Drills are available in diameters ranging from 0.20mm to 1.50mm with usable lengths from 20xd to 80xd.
