In fact, the lock is manufactured (cut, actually) using wire electrical discharge machining (EDM), a process of cutting metal with sparks of electricity--reserved for cutting very hard metals with precision.
Basically, one can choose from four primary cutting processes: oxy-fuel cutting, plasma-arc cutting, laser cutting, waterjet technologies or perhaps wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM).
[6] developed the ultra precision machining system by using Wire Electrical Discharge Machining. The WEDM tool fabrication system is used for micro machining.
[7] modeled the machining parameters of wire electrical discharge machining of Inconel-601 using RSM.
Frank Wallace, spokesperson for Industrial Leaders said its new Grinding Guide was designed to help companies in need of centerless grinding, Blanchard, precision, inside diameter (I.D.), outside diameter (O.D.) grinding, wire electrical discharge machining or related services such as honing, chipping or finishing of various metals, plastics and other materials.
Among the topics are metallurgical affects of three-dimensional printing, experimental investigations for the silicon moulding of plastic components, the rapid moulding of plastics using polyjet printing, wear in shallow cryogenic treated wire in wire electrical discharge machining, and experimental investigations for developing a pattern for dies using fused deposition modeling.
The Minneapolis, Minn.-based firm provides precision machining services for medical devices and surgical instruments; its specialties include computer numeric control (CNC) precision bending, CNC Swiss machining, CNC milling, wire electrical discharge machining, and electro polishing.
