The wire EDM uses a .010" diameter brass wire to cut through steel,
extremely accurate, CNC controlled, programmed using CadCam software.  Can
stack thin steel up to 6" thick to do multiples at once.  It is capable of
cutting up to a 15 degree angle, 3 axis (X,Y, Z)  We also have a 3-axis CNC
vertical milling machine..
