The company HIG (“Handel mit Industriegütern”) translates to “Trade with industrial goods”. Among these goods are EDM wires for metal processing via wire erosion (EDM). The technical demands of wire cutting and the customers require EDM wires in excellent quality.

The key factor for quality — besides the wire drawing — lies in the origin of the ‘mother wire’ (melting and casting). Here, Japan offers the best guarantee of quality for bare EDM wires, e.g. Sumitomo, according to HIG.

Since the beginning of its business activity — the end of the 80's — HIG’s R&D department’s task has been, and still is, to carry out regular audits with the erosion wire manufacturers in order to remain “authentic” in technical progress — now also with the patented pyroelectric coating technology — and in quality.

This way, HIG can offer its customers in Austria and beyond a range of coated and bare EDM wires for their technically demanding cutting tasks.
