Paper Title:
Wire Electro Discharge Machining of Al/SiC Metal Matrix Composite
  Abstract

The machining characteristics of SiC/Al composite using wire electro discharge machining (WEDM) were investigated in this study. Material cutting speed and surface roughness value were adopted to evaluate the machinability. Peak current, pulse on time, pulse duration and working voltage were selected as the input variables to investigate the machining performance. Effects of input variables on the cutting speed and surface roughness were experimentally tested. Peak current, pulse on time and working voltage were confirmed to have positive effects on cutting speed and surface roughness value. Whereas the cutting speed and surface roughness value decrease with the increase of pulse duration.
