For aerospace manufacturers, electrical discharge machining (EDM) has long been the answer to achieving high levels of accuracy and precision. The industry has relied on this technology for various parts, especially ones exposed to high temperatures and stresses. Some producers turned away from early EDM equipment because of damaged surfaces, but continued development has resulted in more stable, predictable processes. Among these improvements are automation components. Robots, handling systems, and sensors provide real-time feedback, greater repeatability, and improved quality.
