Paper Title:
Study on Kerf Width in Wire-EDM Based on Taguchi Method
  Abstract

— This paper presents an experimental investigation on the influence of cutting parameters of wire cut Electrical Discharge Machining (Wire-EDM) during the machining of tungsten carbide and optimization of machining parameters on kerf width. The investigation was conducted by considering the varying parameter of average machining voltage, spark on time, spark off time, and capacitance with Taguchi method as optimizing technique. L9 orthogonal array has been used to determine the S/N ratio, analysis of variance and ‘F’ test values for indicating most significant parameter affecting the machining performance. The significant factors average machining voltage for kerf width. Spark on time, spark off time and capacitance are obtained as insignificant parameters. Further verification of improvements in the quality characteristics has been made through conformation test to the chosen initial parameter setting. The optimal combination of WEDM parameters satisfies the real requirement of quality machining of tungsten carbide.
