Based on the analysis it was found that work electrical conductivity, gap current and pulse on time are the significant parameters that affect the material removal rate. Cutting rate for traveling wire EDM approximately 0.635 mm/s. tool. The optimized parametric conditions are determined for higher MRR through ANOVA and signal to noise (S/N) ratio analysis. The material removal increases with the increase in machining time, but the machining rate is different for different workpiece materials. Experiments were carried out as per Taguchi’s L36 orthogonal array. Material removal is the difference of weight of work-piece before machining and after machining. ii)Material removal rate (MRR): Material removal rate is a desirable characteristic and it should be as high as possible to give least machine cycle time leading to increased productivity. Every shop aims to create more parts in a shorter period of time, or to maximize money made while also … duration the material removal rate increases as pulse current is increased[2].P.Janmanee et.al. that when the value of voltage is increased, the extent of material removal rate in decreased [18,34,64,65]. 5 and raw data are plotted in Fig. List the desirable characteristics of a dielectric. They found that negative polarity graphite electrode has the most MRR 11% & both powder electrodes give the better The material removal process in EDM is associated with the erosive effects which occur as a result of an extremely high temperature due to the high intensity of discharge energy through the plasma channel, Fig. The material removal rate increases with increase in Pulse on time, Wire feed and decreases with increase in Pulse off time and nominal with increase in Spark voltage. 0000004948 00000 n 48 EDM – Material Removal Rate In EDM, the metal is removed from both workpiece and tool electrode.
