Image This forming die was manufactured using a RAM EDM machine with CNC control. To form the hardened steel, several applied printing processes were applied. First, we CNC machined and grinded the graphite electrode, and then we used EDM to die-form plunge into the material. We created EDM start holes to join the two halves of the die together, and then EDM machined dowel holes into the die. The steel was 12” in thickness. Upon completion, the final forming die was 20” long and 30” wide.
