Did you ever wonder how EDM works? Here it is in 6 easy steps. 1. EDM stands for "Electrical Discharge Machine" 2. An electrical charge is applied to an electrode, a brass wire, copper, sterling, or graphite. 3. The electrode then makes a electrical connection with the steel. 4. A spark jumps from the electrode to the work piece and designates the steel with a controlled electrical charge. 5. This process happens thousands of times per second. The mirror image of the electrode is formed in the work piece 6. Picture Michelangelo with a chisel carving a marble sculpture, we do the same thing with electricity, only our chisel is a electrode.
