Custom Wire EDM Services
Using our Wire EDM machines along with MasterCam off-line programming, we offer custom fabrication of complicated profiles with wire as thin as 0.004" in diameter. Manufacturing precise parts with tolerances of plus or minus 0.0002" and surface finishes of RMS 13 is not a problem for us. In addition, the accuracy of our wire EDM services can be verified by our in-house ISO 17025:2005 and ANSI Z540-1 accredited laboratory.
With two machines operating 6 days a week and 20 hours per day, our turnaround time can be compressed, when required. We manufacture parts of various sizes with machines that feature a maximum work envelope of 14" in length by 9" in width, and a maximum height of 8.75". Though we can machine any type of complicated parts, our real specialty is our ability to verify small profiles after they have been cut. Our OGP Vision System makes this a snap.

||At Kent Machine, Inc., our unique and efficient job flow process allows us minimize lead times down to 24hrs compared with other custom gauge designers that turn around gauges and in-process checking fixtures in 2-3 days minimum. This is a significant advantage for turnaround of repairs so that our customers keep their manufacturing downtime to a minimum in cases where production functional gauges break, fail, or fall out of calibration.
