Design of Surface Finish Using Synchronous Process of Grinding and Electrochemical Finishing
In order to elevate the efficiency of the surface finish to reach the fast improvement of the surface roughness of the workpiece, so as to reduce the residual stress on the surface efficiently. The present study discusses the surface after traditional machining, of which the plane surface used a design of finish tool includes an electrode and a nonconductive grinding wheel to execute the synchronous process of grinding and electrochemical finishing. The electrode form and the machining process are obviously different from electrochemical grinding (ECG). In the experiment, the design electrode is used with continuous and pulsed direct current. The controlled factors include die material, and chemical composition and concentration of the electrolyte. The experimental parameters are flow rate of electrolytes, position of plate electrode, electrode thickness, electrode rotational speed, electrical current rating, feed rate of workpiece, and pulsed period. The experimental results show that the supply of current rating is near concern with the position and thickness of the plate electrode. The use of large electrolytic flow rate and thick electrode is advantageous to the finish effect. High rotational speed of finish tool produces better polishing. The finishing effect is better with longer off-time because discharge of polishing dregs becomes easier. Higher current rating with quicker workpiece feed rate effectively reaches the fast improvement of the surface roughness of the workpiece is recommend in current study.
