Services and Capabilities @ Plouse Precision Manufacturing
Plouse Precision Manufacturing uses wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) to produce precision parts for many applications. We serve a variety of markets such as aerospace, medical, defense, automotive and electronics/semiconductor manufacturing, all of which have parts that may use wire EDM to achieve close tolerances.

Wire EDM Service at our Harrisburg Location
Using our CNC controlled wire EDMs, we repeatedly produce precision parts with a high level of accuracy and program complex geometries. Wire EDM is a non-traditional method of removing material by a series of rapidly recurring electrical arcing discharges between an electrode (the wire) and the work piece. The machine’s DC-charged thin brass wire can slice through any electrically conductive material, including difficult-to-machine metals such as hardened tool steels. 

Electrical Discharge Machining will only work with materials that are electrically conductive and generally those materials are ferrous alloys. The wire-cut process uses water as its dielectric with the water’s resistivity and other electrical properties being carefully controlled by filters and deionizer units. The water also serves the critical function of flushing the cut debris away from the work piece. 
Wire EDM’d surfaces are smooth with a matte appearance. The edges of the finished work piece have virtually no burrs as compared to milled cuts. The Fanuc Robocut ?-1ic is the latest model used at our Harrisburg location. Surface finishes are typically between 16 and 64 micro inches as dictated by the feed rate and material type. Just a few of the benefits of wire EDM include:

  • Wire EDM is a cost-effective replacement for “form grinding.”
  • The need for grinding and other finishing procedures is lessened.
  • Certain tightly toleranced features can be produced more economically than with conventional machining.
  • Parts can often be “stacked” to machine multiple pieces with one setup.
  • Finished products have near or burr-free edges.
  • Wire EDM offers complex geometrical capabilities.
  • High Rockwell materials can be cut without pushing the material, minimizing work-hardening.

News in the Manufacturing Industry
To be successful during this recession and competitive in today’s market, it is important to take advantage of every possible cost-saving initiative. Wire EDM can reduce costs for manufacturing parts by alleviating the costly setups and tooling costs associated with certain complicated machining procedures.
