Sinker & Wire EDM

We specialize in wire and sinker EDM services.

Wire EDM uses a wire to discharge an electrical current that is set through a metal workpiece. The wire and the workpiece are submerged under a layer of dielectric fluid. Sinker EDM uses an electrode and workpiece. Although the designs of both are slightly different, the end goal is the same: using thermal energy to remove existing materials.

Sinker EDM is often used to make dies and molds, and is often used in the automotive and aerospace industries, while wire EDM is typically used in extrusion dies.

Wire Versus Sinker EDM: Which One Do You Need?

If you are working on a brittle or fragile material, you should use wire EDM to save the piece from impact and stress. If you need to create complicated parts quickly and accurately, then you should use sinker EDM. Contact us today to learn more about our EDM services!

Take Advantage of Our 2D & 3D Milling Services

2D and 3D milling is widely used in many industries for mold and die making, castings, and more. Global Design and Development specializes in both 2D and 3D milling. Read below to learn more.

3D Milling With VMCs

We also provide 3D milling with vertical machining centers (VMCs). Our advanced 3D milling machines use 3 separate axes that can cut to different depths, creating a wide variety of shapes. If you have a specific product you need to produce, contact us today.

Get a Mold Flow Analysis Today

Prevent production inefficiencies and flaws with a comprehensive mold flow analysis from Global Design and Development. Running a mold flow analysis before production begins will help you understand which material is best for your needs, troubleshoot potential issues, and more.

We have a tremendous amount of experience conducting this type of analysis—contact us today to learn more, or to request a quote.

Why You Need a Mold Flow Analysis

There are several reasons why you would need a mold flow analysis. As mentioned previously, they help uncover design flaws, but they can also speed up your cycle time, help you save resources, and preemptively address issues during the manufacturing process.

We Repair Injected Molded Plastic

At Global Design and Development, we also repair injection molded plastic. Injection molding is one of the most popular manufacturing procedures that people use, but injection molded plastic can break from time to time. Common signs that you may need to repair your injected molded plastic include:

  • Discoloration
  • Flow Marks
  • Cracks
  • Flashing

If you’ve noticed any of these signs, call us today.
