In this study, the geometric wear characteristics of tool electrodes were obtained for various pulse time, discharge current and machining depth settings in electric discharge machining. Different forms of protrusions were machined on the front surface of the tool to reduce the geometric wear. Significant reductions in original tool geometric wear characteristics (front wear, side wear and edge wear) were obtained with the use of square cross-section protrusions. The dimensions of the square cross-section protrusions were modeled mathematically in terms of machining parameters used in the experiments.

Micro processing by intense fast electron beam
Goktas, H; Kirkici, H; Oke, G; Udrea, M (2001-06-22)
Generation of intense electron beams by superposing two discharges, namely a low pressure do glow discharge and a high current pulsed discharge at pressures and voltages very similar to that of the pseudo-spark gap devices, has been reported previously [1, 2]. The small diameter, high peak current and short pulse length are the characteristics of the electron beam generated using this technique. In this technique, no high vacuum facilities are necessary, and many applications such as micro processing, X-ray...
Theoretical and experimental investigation of residual stresses in electric discharge machining
Ekmekçi, Bülent; Erden, Abdülkadir; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) is a process for eroding and removing material by transient action of electric sparks on electrically conductive materials immersed in a dielectric liquid and separated by a small gap. A spark-eroded surface is a surface with matt appearance and random distribution of overlapping craters. It is mechanically hard and stressed close to ultimate tensile strength of the material and sometimes covered with a network of micro cracks. The violent nature of the process leads a uni...
Single discharge thermo-electrical modeling of micromachining mechanism in electric discharge machining
Sarikavak, Yasin; Cogun, Can (2012-05-01)
In this study, single discharge thermo-electrical model of workpiece material removal in electrical discharge machining (EDM) was developed. Developed model includes generation of energy in liquid media, variation of plasma channel radius and transfer of heat from the channel by the electrical discharge. Effect of generated energy in plasma channel on workpiece removal was theoretically investigated by using different experimental parameters used in literature. The developed model finds the temperature dist...
Characteristic features of an ionization system with semiconducting cathode
SALAMOV, BAKHTİYAR; ALTINDAL, ŞEMSETTİN; ÖZER, METİN; Colakoglu, K; Bulur, Enver (EDP Sciences, 1998-06-01)
The characteristic features of a de discharge genera.ted between parallel plate electrodes and especially the discharge stabilization by the GaAs semiconducting cathode in such a system are studied. The cathode was irradiated on the back-side with IR light in a particular wavelength range that was used to control the photoconductivity of the material. The semiconductor material was found to stabilize the discharge. The current-voltage and radiation-voltage characteristics of the gas discharge cell with a se...
Modular fixture design for CNC machining centers
Kılıçarslan, Yusuf; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
A new modular fixturing system is developed for CNC machining centers in the content of this thesis study. In the proposed fixture, studies are carried on to manufacture precise parts for finish milling operations. Some workpieces are loaded in the proposed fixturing system by using relevant fixture elements. Forces and moments are investigated that are acting during the machining operation. The precision of the machined surfaces is estimated by using Monte-Carlo Simulation. In the experimental section of t...
