EDM (wire cutting and spark erosion)

World-leading equipment for complex parts and precision components

We are proud to have equipment regarded by many as the market leaders Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), a process often also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, die sinking or wire erosion.

Due to our continued investment and expertise in the two primary methods, die Sinking EDM and wire EDM, we are able to produce very complex parts and precision components from a range of conductive materials, whether hardened or soft.

Our dedicated department operates a strict quality controlled environment in order to maintain the high levels of accuracy, with wire cut machines running non-stop 24/7.

Some of the fastest cut speeds in the industry

We are proud to have two Agie Charmilles and one Mitsubishi wire cut machines, all three of which are fully submersed, meaning we can offer some of the fastest cut speeds in the industry.

Our Mitsubishi MV4800 wire cut machines is one of only two in the UK with a 800mm x 600mm x 510mm working area.

We also employ spark erosion and fast hole drilling machines, enabling us to produce almost any shaped odd-shaped holes, angles, contours and cavities in a wide variety of conductive materials.

Having the capability to do this in house bring benefits to our customers as it reduces overall project lead time and efficiencies when new punches are required.

How we work

With more than 50 years’ experience to call upon, we’re proud to have fine-tuned our tool-making process.


Concept Analysis

Every successful project starts with a clear brief. Once it’s fully understood by our toolmaking experts, we analyse the form and function. From this we develop the initial tooling concept ready to allow us to address every critical feature.


Design & Modelling

After agreeing any adjustments or modifications, we begin to create the final approved working 3D design – detailing every feature required to efficiently and confidently enter the manufacturing process.


Assembly & Production

Using the latest 3D manufacturing techniques we produce the high accuracy components required. Following accurate assembly the tools tested to ensure the required specification is achieved.

What our clients are saying

…Paragon always go the extra mile and ensure that everything is working perfect every time…

James Welbeck – Food company

The die ran extremely well at 50 parts per minute with good quality. We have now commissioned the tool ready for production. The toolmakers deserve a pat on the back.

Paul, New Tooling Engineer – Automotive – Sunderland

Our customer has laid down three sets of tooling, one in Taiwan, one in the UK and one with Paragon Toolmaking. The parts off the Paragon tool are the best by far.

Chris, – General Manager – Computer Casing Components – Tewkesbury
