Paper Title:
Optimization by Grey Relational Analysis of EDM Parameters on Machining Ti-6Al-4V
  Abstract

In this paper, parameter optimization of the electrical discharge machining process to Ti–6Al–4V alloy considering the multiple responses using the Taguchi method and grey relational analysis is reported. The multi-response optimization of the process parameters are material removal rate (MRR) and electrode wear rate (EWR). The machining parameters including discharge current, voltage, pulse on time and duty factor. Experiment based on the orthogonal array, The optimized process parameters simultaneously leading to a lower electrode wear ratio and higher material removal rate are then verified through a confirmation experiment. The experimental result for the optimal setting shows that there is considerable improvement in the process. The validation experiments show an improved electrode wear ratio of 2.8%, material removal rate of 45.8% when the Taguchi method and grey relational analysis are used.
