At Astro Manufacturing and Design, we're committed to providing our customers with the latest in cutting-edge technology and machining. With this in mind, Astro Manufacturing and Design has invested heavily in Electrical Discharge Machinery (EDM) technology. We use a complete family of EDM machinery that will accommodate a wide variety of needs—all with CNC capabilities. With both wire EDM and sinker EDM processes, we’ll find the right approach for your unique project.

Wire EDM is ideal for producing complex designs on hardened materials, and our advanced wire EDM capabilities include a range of high-speed production machines. These wire EDM machines offer cutting areas of up to 48” x 25” x 16” in height. For your special needs, our wire EDM machines can accommodate up to 30-degree taper cuts.

New, state-of-the-art, four axis programming for wire EDM machines integrates your CAD files for increased cost savings, and quicker turn-around on production parts. Our experienced wire EDM machinists can also suggest design modifications to help ensure you receive the most cost effective machining available. To learn more about our wire EDM abilities, please see below.
