As the workpiece and tool material are not in direct contact during EDM, the Laboratory Spark Erosion Machine can be used to prepare sub-mm size samples of materials that, as a result of their mechanical properties, prove difficult to machine using traditional methods.
The Laboratory Spark Erosion machine is particularly effective when used for the production of 3mm TEM disks using a tubular electrode and when used with a wire cutting stage to produce thin material samples devoid of the deformation characteristic of traditional machining processes. The setup is currently being implemented for hot-cell use.
