How Micro-Tronics Leverages EDM Manufacturing for Unusual Alloys

How Micro-Tronics Leverages EDM Manufacturing for Unusual Alloys Have you struggled to get machined parts made from unusual alloys such as inconel, tungsten, rhenium and molybdenum? Precision machine shops tend to specialize in CNC machining, but some exotic materials require a different, non-contact manufacturing method: electronic discharge machining (EDM).  At Micro-Tronics, we specialize in both […]

Bonded Plate Seals

Could Your Application Benefit from Bonded Plate Seals?

Could Your Application Benefit from Bonded Plate Seals?

Is EDM Right For Your Manufactured Parts?

Is EDM Right For Your Manufactured Parts? When English scientist Joseph Priestly first noticed how electrical sparks could cut through metal in 1770, he likely never imagined that Electrical Discharge Machining, or EDM, would become a mainstay in the manufacturing world. EDM is a non-contact machining method that creates an electrical current between a conductive […]
