Temperature theoretical model of Ti-6Al-4Valloy during electrical discharge machining (EDM) process is established in this paper. Based on finite element thermal analysis, the temperature field of EDM Ti-6Al-4V on a single discharge is simulated with the aid of ANSYS software. The results show that there is a high temperature distribution around the spark point while the thermal-affected zone is quite small. Additionally, the profiles of discharge crater geometry have been predicted and the relation between crater shape and parameters under different current and pulse duration are also explored.
