Wire EDM

Wire EDM (electrical discharge machining) uses an electric current passing through a thin wire to cut patterns in hard materials, similar to how a woodworker's scroll saw passes through wood. Wire EDM is sometimes called spark machining or arc machining.

Wire EDM is primarily used to machine extremely hard materials (Monel, Titanium, Hastelloy, Kovar, Inconel, etc.) to very close tolerances, and to provide complex, intricate, detailed shapes unsuitable for traditional machining methods.

Natura Products provides contract wire EDM services. We excel at short to medium productions runs, including prototype parts.

57 Years of Quality

Natura Products is certified by UL DQS Inc. to the International Organization for Standardization ISO 9001:2015. We are an affiliate of Chicago Cutting Die and a global supplier of high-performance matched dies, stamping, and wire EDM. Natura was established in 1963 by a former Chicago Cutting Die employee, Dick Brettner. Dick named his new company after his first customer: the Field Museum of Natural History.

Dick was a talented die maker and a trusted outsource partner of Chicago Cutting Die for decades. When Dick retired in 1985, Chicago Cutting Die's holding company acquired Natura Products. In 1995, both companies moved to Northbrook, Illinois. The companies now share a facility and a commitment to precision, quality, and personal service.
