Study on Rules in Material Removal Rate and Surface Quality of Short Electric Arc Machining Process
Short electric arc machining (SEAM) is a non-conventional machining process that utilizes an arc to melt and vaporize workpiece material. A low voltage, high current supply is employed to produce a continuous arc in either a water-air mixed medium or in air. This paper describes an investigation into the optimization of the SEAM machining efficiency based on experimental design which considers both electrical parameters and machine parameters. The work uses the orthogonal experiment processes to research the influence of the process indicators on machining efficiency.
