Wire Erosion EDM utilises a wire electrode as the ‘cutting tool’. Wire Erosion EDM is ideal for manufacturing components from hard or difficult-to-machine materials. Di-Spark use Wire Erosion EDM to manufacture components for the Energy Sector & Valves, Satellite, Formula 1, Medical, Oil & Gas & Aerospace
Spark Erosion EDM machining uses a machined electrode to ‘sink’ its form into the workpiece, hence the term, Di-Sink. Metal is removed by vapourising material via repetitive sparks. Geometries that are impossible to produce by conventional machining can be produced by Spark Erosion EDM
Precision machining: 5-axis machining allows the spindle to be positioned in several planes and/or angles to the work-piece. Five sides of a prismatic part can be machined in a single operation thus reducing set-up times (and improving metal removal efficiency & precision, tool life and surface finish and reducing tolerance build-up)
Mill-turn machining centres converge two metal cutting technologies into a single machine. Components which were traditionally processed on multiple machines can now be ‘done-in-one’. This technology allows Di-Spark to be lean, efficient and cost effective
Di-Spark’s large machining cell utilises the latest large-component manufacturing technology. Working alongside partners at +GF+ AgieCharmilles, we use Mikron HPM 1350U high performance milling centres for processes ranging from heavy rough machining to precise finish machining.
Our rapid response 5 axis machining cell offers the latest precision machining technologies, running 24/7 and configured to handle rapid response machining requirements. This cell manufactures high quality, rapid response product within short lead times and carries impressive capability.
Di-Spark Ltd are certified to AS9100 revision C, for the manufacture of complex parts, components and sub-assemblies. Di-Spark are also signatories to the SC21 Supply Chain Improvement programme, aimed at removing red tape and practising lean manufacturing principles.
