Investigation on Influences by Adapting Additives to Electrolytic In-Process Dressing (ELID) Grinding
As demand for high-quality machined tools considerably grows, ELID, a new and efficient technology, has been successfully brought into the precise manufacturing industry of hard and brittle materials with mirror surface finish. Hence, besides conventional functions like lubrication, fluid solutions in this grinding process are required to serve more functions, especially as electrolyte. Writers of this paper mainly work on the methodology to optimize this kind of fluid by adding various related chemical additives. By varying the pH, the accretion of additives is controlled and consequential effects are studied which is the metallic oxide layer variation before and after each test. Corresponding experiments have been carried out with procedures and results analysis included in the paper.
