Surface Integrity in Electrical Discharge Machining of Ti-6Al-4V
Titanium alloy is a kind of typical difficult-to-machine materials. In this study, the surface integrity of titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V machined by electrical discharge machining (EDM) method are experimentally investigated and analyzed in term of surface roughness, SEM micrographs and microcracks. Effect of discharge energy and material properties on surface integrity are presented in this paper.
