Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) Market: Introduction

Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) is a non-traditional machining and electro thermal process of removing desired material from any workpiece by using electrical sparks (discharges) in between electrodes and the workpiece. Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) is an important process during metal fabrication. The electric discharge machine is used for removing those materials which have high strength temperature resistance. Some of the equipment used in electrical discharge machining (EDM) are dielectric reservoir, pump, circulating system, power generator and control unit, working tank with work holding devices, and tool holder and servo system to move the tool.
