Investigation of Machining Parameters in Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (WEDM) on the Surface Roughness & Cutting Speed of Tungsten Carbide

Authors

Abstract

Surface roughness is one of the most important parameters that plays very critical role in determining the quality of engineering components. A good surface quality resulting in improve of fatigue strength, corrosion and wear resistance of the workpiece. On the other hand, increasing cutting speed and decreasing time of machining are desirable for manufacturers in order to reduce costs and increase rate of production. According to importance of above subjects, having high surface with low cost is required to have proper understanding of cutting parameters of WEDM. In this study, the effect of parameters such as Power, Time-off pulse, Open circuit voltage and Servo voltage on Tungsten carbide is investigated.
