  • 24 Feb 2006
  • Processes and Equipment

These recommendations concern electrical discharge machining (EDM), sometimes known as spark erosion machining, which is a known source of serious fires in engineering premises.

The document aims to reduce the incidence of such fires and minimise the hazards to life, property and the continuity of the business should a fire occur, by ensuring that the design, installation and operation of such equipment is of a suitably high standard.
