40 years ago, Wayne Applegate set out to find a more feasible way of machining parts. After some research he caught on to Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and was intrigued by the increased versatility, accuracy, and speed that it could provide. And in 1979, looking to provide solutions using this technology, he started the first EDM shop in Texas.
Today Applegate EDM is a leading provider of wire, sinker and small hole EDM services. Our capabilities include machining die components, extrusion dies, mold details and electrodes. We can execute high precision, small wire diameters, 30+ degree taper angles, and automatic threading.
