For wire EDM, a starting hole in the block for eroding is advantageous since otherwise the EDM contour cannot be optimally determined and it leads to high wear if the wire is introduced from the side. That’s why Meusburger now provides the new NE-Blocks for eroding with customisable starting holes.
At Meusburger, the position of all starting holes – with Ø of 1 mm – is freely configurable. Up to 10 starting holes can be defined, depending on the subsequent EDM contour. This guarantees maximum flexibility in the design. The selection is done in just a few steps in the Meusburger web shop or offline shop. First the suitable block for eroding is selected. This is available in 7 different materials, in heat treated or hardened versions, as well as in many different sizes. Then a window automatically opens, asking if starting holes should be defined. If this is confirmed with a YES, the X and Y coordinates for the respective starting holes can be entered quickly and easily.
