Since we concentrate on wire EDM services and don’t build tooling/dies/molds ourselves, we do not have conflict of interest issues with our clients regarding their customers. The kind of work done here is varied: some production work, special projects, close tolerance mold and die work, progressive die work, blanking die work, multi-slide die work, small wire diameter precision work in steel, carbide, aluminum, copper, titanium, brass, bronze, exotic metals and compressed powdered metals. All of our wire EDM machines are very well maintained and are auto-threading, which enhances efficiency through more unmanned machine hours. We have the ability to utilize .006, .008, .010, and .012 wire diameters so we can match efficiency and performance with precision requirements. Our Mitsubishi FX30 features a large table combined with dependable accuracy. Because Republic EDM emphasizes quality and precision, we are careful to provide the very best surface quality and edge integrity. The die components we produce have a better die life, reducing the frequency of rework and sharpening so that our clients can produce the highest quality parts. References attesting to our commitment to excellence and professionalism are available.
