Frequently Asked Questions
What is CNC Wire Cut Machine?
A CNC Wire Cut Machine is a machine that can be controlled by CAM software to remove material from a part or piece of stock material using Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). Using a thin strand of superheated wire, CNC Wire Cut Machines are capable of very fine cuts and able to machine challenging shapes and materials with extreme accuracy.
What is CNC EDM wire cut?
CNC EDM wire cut, or EDM machining, is a method of machining using a computer numerical control Wire EDM machine to produce parts using a thin strand of superheated wire.
How do you program a wire EDM?
A wire EDM machine is programmed like all computer numerical control machines, with a CAM software. Software such as Mastercam converts a programmer’s instructions into the code that controls a wire EDM machine to cut parts to exact specifications.
With fast, easy, and complete control over tab creation you can quickly add multiple tabs to any piece of geometry.
Our Mastercam Resellers bring years of practical experience specific to various regions, manufacturing goals, and language requirements worldwide, to ensure that as a Mastercam user, you always have the support you need to get the most out of your CAD/CAM investment.

Geometry and toolpath nesting provide an extremely fast way to program several parts while utilizing stock efficiently to reduce scrap.
How does software help wire EDM?
You can use software, like Mastercam, to control CNC wire EDM machines. Using CAM software, you can increase accuracy, speed, and repeatability as compared to manual programming.
What is EDM wire used for?
Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) uses an electrically charged wire to remove material from a piece of stock material. EDM wire machining is used for conductive materials, very hard materials, and to machine parts with very small internal corners or parts requiring extreme accuracy.
