Article Preview

In this article, parametric optimization for material removal rate (MRR) and surface roughness (SR) study on the powder mixed electrical discharge machining (PMEDM) of EN-8 steel has been carried out. Response surface methodology (RSM) has been used to plan and analyze the experiments. Average current, duty cycle, diameter of electrode and concentration of micro-nickel powder added into dielectric fluid of EDM were chosen as process parameters to study the PMEDM performance in terms of MRR and SR. Experiments have been performed on newly designed experimental setup developed in laboratory. Most important parameters affecting selected performance measures have been identified and effects of their variations have been observed.
