With the improvement of the technological processing system, improvement massively directed towards increasing their amount of removed material, the distance between the productivity of EDM processing and the productivity of other conventional processes is constantly decreasing. This has led to an improvement in the technological relationship of EDM processing compared to other processing processes. This paper presents the process of preparing manufacturing work for wire EDM machines used to produce extrusion dyes based on digital engineering data. The final part of the paper argues that EDM is the technological process of dimensional processing that will require the development of many areas of human existence, through the possibilities of this technology to solve major material problems.
