Transient Dynamic Analysis of Machine Ram
The movement of the electrode of SEDM (Fig. 1) brings dynamic forces, therefore this paper utilize FEM to analyze the load conditions of the machine. An analysis shows that the ram is the component which impacts the machine accuracy greatly; Through transient dynamic analysis of the ram，the paper gets diagrams of displacement, stress and reaction force versus time, and analyzes the solution results to get the relationship between the joints and the machine accuracy.
