EDM Wire

Hard Brass

The majority of wire EDM MACHINES use standard hard brass wire. There are a multitude of suppliers of this consumable, all offering what they say is the lowest cost and the best quality. What the customer does not see is that there is a real difference in the Quality and cleanliness of the wire. Upfront costs seem low initially, but when you factor in the slower cutting speed, increased wire breakage and increased maintenance due to dirty wire clogging guides and other components, you eventually see a back end loss of profit. This can end up costing considerably more than any up front savings.

SparQuetec supplies the best quality HITECH brass wire supplied worldwide by the Sodick group. Our wires are a true 60/40 (Brass/Zinc) formulation which improves cutting speed. It is a hard brass with a tensile strength of 1000 N/mm² Because of this, we are one of the fastest cutting Hard Brass wires out there. With the HQ Hard Brass EDM wire, you will find an exceptionally clean wire due to the stringent manufacturing process and QC of the HITECH wire Electrode manufacturer, with little or no brass flakes reducing needed maintenance.

Available wires are .006”, .008”, .010”, .012” on spools of P6, P10, and P20 with DIN-160 (DIN-250 spools available)


Zinc Coated WIRE

The HITECH Z wire is a high quality Zinc Gamma coated brass wire. The wire is known for being consistent and accurate. Because of the GAMMA coating, there is a noticeable performance boost when cutting virtually any metal or alloy. The wire is economical due to the HOT dipped process used to manufacture the wire. Not only does this wire work well on all Japanese machines, but it works particularly well with the non-AWT European machines as well. Because of the increased speed, the slight price difference is easily justified.

Available wires are .008”, .010”, .012” on spools of P5, P10, and P20 with DIN-160 (DIN-250 spools available)
