Narrow Beam Machining on Micro-WEDM
This paper aims to investigate the performance of narrow beam machined by MWEDM. The narrow beam machining experiments are carried out on self-development Micro-WEDM with Φ30μm electrode wire. Narrow beams with the width around 10μm are machined on E52100 steel under different machine conditions (discharge energy, servo reference voltage). Based on the analysis of the experiments results, the coupled temperature and stress analysis using ANSYS finite element analysis software is performed to investigate causes of the failures on process.
