Wire EDM of Kovar Clip for the Electronics Industry

The U.S. military requested that Olympic EDM & Waterjet Inc. manufacture a Kovar clip to be used in an electronics application. With our deep knowledge of wire EDM and with our sturdy grasp of the nature of Kovar and its delicate framework, we knew we could get our assignment turned around promptly in the two weeks’ time requested.

Employing a Makino EDM, we performed wire EDM in several phases. After an initial period of machining with a Tree to hold the various parts in place for each operation, the parts were removed when all was completed. We attained overall part dimensions of 3 mm in length and 2 mm in width with tightest tolerances of ±.05” . The material finish was natural, gold-plated, and all specifications of the customer-supplied CAD file had been met successfully. After completing 200 of each part comfortably within the 2 week framework, the Kovar clips were sent promptly to our clients, who found them entirely to their satisfaction.
