Research on NC Electrochemical Mechanical Complex Machining Stainless Steel
For hard machining metal materials with high rigidity，high strength or high toughness, the method of electrochemical mechanical complex machining is proposed. A NC high-speed machine tool for carving and milling is transformed into a NC electrochemical mechanical complex machine tool in which complex tool-electrodes, particular tool holders, a new rotary table, a protective flume for electrolyte and pipelines are made and assembled, so that machine tool can achieve a series of machining, such as milling, drilling, grinding and polishing by utilizing complex tool-electrode motion generated by NC. For 304 stainless steel orthogonal experiment is carried out, and five principal process parameters that are spindle rev, feed speed, voltage, pressure of electrolyte and depth of cut, are investigating in the method of NC Electrochemical Mechanical complex machining. The optimization process parameters are obtained.
