Investigation of Material Removal Mechanism in EDM of Sintered NdFeB Permanent Magnet
Sintered NdFeB permanent magnet is widely used in many applications because of its excellent magnet property. However the report of EDM research on NdFeB magnet is not available. This paper presents a detailed investigation of the material removal mechanisms of sintered NdFeB magnet through analysis of the machining debris and the surface SEM quality. It is included three types of machining mechanisms: melting and evaporating, thermal cracking, spalling or whole grain removal.
