Gas-Liquid Combined Multiple Cut for WEDM
This study investigates the dry WEDM in multiple cut. To improve surface quality with high-speed WEDM (HS-WEDM), a new procedure as Gas-liquid Combined Multiple Cut (roughing is processed in dielectric liquid, and semi-finishing is in liquid or gas, while the finishing is in gas) is presented. Effects of pulse duration, peak current, offset, worktable feed and wire length on roughness and removal rate for dry semi-finishing were studied were studied with L16(45) design, and significant order inflluncing roughness and removal rate were found. Experiment results show that multiple cut with dry WEDM in semi-finishing and finishing can improve surface roughness significantly.
