Faster burning, lower wire consumption with 0.012‑inch wire

Trying to burn faster on a WEDM has always been a trade off--push the burn and risk accuracy and finish problems, or spend more money for larger diameter wire. New 0.012-inch diameter wire technologies provide significantly faster burning speed while using the same or lower poundage of wire as if the job were done with standard 0.010-inch diameter wire. Add to this new technology for wire tensioning and you have the speed and accuracy to satisfy the most demanding customers, while still reducing wire consumption costs.
