Research of High Efficiency Combined Wire Electrochemical Machining Technology and its Application
In view of major problems for the current metal cutting technology, a combined sand coated wire electrochemical machining technology is introduced. This method uses porous silicon carbide coated in metal wire electrode for grinding and electrolytic machining, which has both wire electrolytic and sand wire grinding characteristics, and greatly improves the cutting efficiency. The composite wire electrochemical cutting technology principle is analyzed. The method for determining the main process parameters is presented, and the effectiveness of its application in thin-walled metal pipe cutting is validated.
