Parts Made with Electric Discharge Machining

EDM is extremely versatile. Manufacturers cut parts with intricate detail using this highly-sophisticated technology for industries that require tight tolerances and top quality, like the aerospace industry, the military and the electronics industry.

American Wire EDM has a page on their site that offers a complete overview of electric discharge machining. I recommend reading it if you want to learn more. Additionally, for an excellent visual demonstration, check out this video:
