XACT Wire EDM provides wire electrical discharge machining services nationwide for a very large variety of metal parts manufacturers. Our dedication to only providing wire EDM (and high-speed small hole EDM) services allows us to partner with you on projects requiring this process. You may or may not have your own EDM in house. Either way, we can help. WEDM is ideal for creating metal parts with narrow slots or small holes, components made from difficult-to-machine materials, and parts requiring a precise fit and tolerances. Complex geometries such as involute gears or splines can be easily machined.
Many of our customers are production machining providers producing metal parts who may have some EDM capability but need our help with large projects or challenging parts. XACT Wire EDM is uniquely focused on wire EDM, so we are the ideal company to closely partner with.
XACT Wire EDM has a large pool of over 45 Wire EDM machines. We also consistently invest in the latest programming and inspection equipment so we can offer our manufacturing customers the greatest precision and highest throughput.

We can achieve tight tolerances down to +/- .0001” and accurately cut high tapers. We invite you to send us your most demanding CNC part specifications and look forward helping you with challenging applications.
Wire EDM Tackles the Toughest Part Materials
Machined metal parts are often made from tough hardened steel to minimize wear and tear and increase their useful life. When working with these tougher materials, machinists turn to XACT Wire EDM. Of course, we can also machine materials such as aluminum.
Our wire EDM and small-hole EDM capabilities include many difficult-to-machine conductive metals and alloys including:
- Tool steels
- Stainless steels
- Hardened steels
- High-speed steels
- Carbon steel
- High-speed cobalt
Our exclusive commitment to wire EDM means that we have the necessary equipment and technology to work with practically any metal material, superalloys, and hardened materials like Ferro-TiC and CPM10v.
Advantages of Wire EDM for Metal Machine Parts
Wire EDM is highly precise, and suitable for everything from prototype parts to large-scale production. Benefits to CNC parts manufacturers include:
- Very small corners & radii
- Exotic & hardened materials (hardness has no detrimental effect)
- Tight tolerances & precise fits (+/-.0001”)
- Delicate & complex parts (no cutting forces)
- 4-axis & intricate contours (for extrusion dies, molds, food processing, etc.)
- Burr-free cutting
- Narrow slots & thin walls
- Improved consistent surface finishes
- Ability to stack, string & nest multiple parts to conserve material
- Highly repeatable (no tool wear)
- Any angle of entry/geometry of surface
Wire EDM requires no special tooling or fixturing and offers shorter lead times compared to other manufacturing methods. At XACT Wire EDM our quality management system is ISO 9001:2015 certified.
