The first wire used in the wire EDM method is copper. It is still used due to its usability and high conductivity. As faster and stronger machines are produced, copper cannot reach current cutting speeds. But it can still be used for old machines and slow processes.
Copper is a durable product especially preferred for coated EDM wires. For example, CuZn coated wire is a high-performance wire which is capable of cutting precisely and meets high-speed requirements.
