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.

Lead Times

At Kent Machine, Inc., our unique and efficient job flow process allows us minimize lead times down to 24 hrs 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.

Specialty Capabilities

Kent Machine Inc. has in-house specialty Heat Treating and Cryogenic Freeze capabilities to insure the quickest turnaround, highest quality, and dimensional consistency for your gauging and checking equipment needs. Our on-site Cryogenic Freeze cycle in (-270 °F) Liquid Nitrogen (HT>Draw>Freeze>Draw) stabilizes and stress relieves the material's molecular structure for maintaining dimensional consistency during the final grinding process, likewise assuring only the tightest tolerances and finest surface finishes for the most precise gauges and inspection fixtures.

KMI also specializes in gauge repair and calibration. Many shops will perform gauge design, build and repair. But few will also perform the calibration and validation in-house. This means Kent Machine Inc. is also a one stop shop for gauge repair (including subsequent calibration). This reduces lead times and increases confidence that the gauge will be repaired quickly and correctly, the first time.

Wire EDM

Close tolerance gauges to die components are all easily machined from hardened tool steel while maintaining 0.0002" tolerances. Work capacity of 8" height x 9" wide x 14" in length with wire size down to 0.004" diameter.
