Where to find info on the fundamentals and basics to wire edm machining

I am fairly new to wire edm machining. I am a 14 year cnc mill machinist that has now transitioned to our wire edm department. I have no background in edm machining plus no real access to formal training. Can anyone recommend books, articles, and videos that would help me have a better understanding of the process and fundamentals to give me more info as to the theory behind wire edm machining? I would really appreciate any and all help as I am the only person running the edm department at my shop.

I recently came across this article and bookmarked it for later. I can’t vouch for any of the books but it seems like a useful list.

Use that Youtube link that was posted and if you have a manual for your machine, read it and then read it again. Helped me out a lot when I started WireEDM.

I’d recommend getting EDM Today magazine. It’s been published for about 30 years and contains many great articles. They also have archived issues on their website.
