CINCINNATI, OH (November 27, 2012) – Diehl Steel has introduced Ready-Block EDM Blanks for EDM applications.

They are available in many popular tool steel grades including in-stock AISI A-2 and D-2 (RC 58-62).
Each block is first precision machined to a specific thickness, width and length, within +.010”/.020” tolerance. They are then hardened and tempered to a standard hardness. A starter hole is included at the customer’s request.
