Q&A about Wire Electric Discharge Machining(EDM)

Q
What is the difference between HBZ-U and HBZ-MU ?
A
Material composition differs.
EDM wire is made of brass which is an alloy of copper and zinc.
HBZ-U⇒Cu:60% and Zn:40%
HBZ-MU⇒Cu:65% and Zn:35%
The more zinc composition EDM wire can have more electric discharge,
resulting in better cutting performance.
Q
What is the difference between Paraffin wire and Non-Paraffin wire ?
A
A paraffine wire is that a wire has lubricant paraffin on its surface.
It can help less wire snagging and less brass powder during EDM process.
Our product desicription shows (N) if it is a Non-parrafine wire. (ex.HBZ-U(N)20)
When there is not (N) of its description, it means a Parrafine wire. (ex.HBZ-U20)
Q
would like to know the wire length
