EDM Micro-Machining

Posalux is a leader in industrialization of micro technologies for mass production.
Posalux micro-EDM solution for all high-end productive micro-drilling needs, based on a strong experience in powertrain automotive applications.

 

Micro Machining:

  • Hole diameter from 50 μm to 2 mm (0.002 to 0.08 inch)
  • Tapered hole with reverse taper up to 150 μm/mm
  • Wall thickness / hole diameter ratio up to 12 
  • All shapes (square, rectangle, ...) 
  • All conductive material
  • Without burrs and material deposit, no micro-cracks
  • Flow stability: +/- 3 %
  • Smooth roughness: Ra < 0.2 μm ; Rz < 1 μm

 

 

μ-EDM:

Based on the electro erosion principle, the integrated SARIX μ-EDM technology allows machining with high quality and efficiency, meeting the needs of mass production scenarios.

 


Electrode guiding system:

The integrated advanced electrode guiding system precisely feeds the smallest electrode available on the market, down to 30 μm.

 

Specific devices and solutions
