Shaping Law and Motion Design in NC-ECM under Effect of Twiste Angle


Article Preview

The twiste angle has a great effect on shaping law and stability of Numerical Controlled Electrochemical Machining (NC-ECM) process. In order to avoid the disadvantages caused by twiste angle, a methode of study shaping law by dispersing cathode working face in NC-ECM was proposed, and a mathematical model of the shaping law with the effects of twiste angle has been established in this paper. The mathematical model disclosed the relationship of twiste angle β, feeding velocity vf and thickness of removal material h in NC-ECM. Theoretical and experimental results show the the mathematical model of shaping law described in this paper can be considered as a useful reference and is helpful for the analysis of the NC-ECM and general ECM process.
