Experimental Analysis and Optimization of Process Parameters of EDM for EN-47 - A Review Article

Authors(3) :-Patel Parth kumar S, Krunal Shah, S. J. Thanki

The aims of this research work to identify parameters of  EN47 spring steel material on EDM machine by applying  Copper & Graphite electrodes. And  pursue the influence of four design factors pulse on(Ton),pulse off (Ton) , current (I), voltage (V), and duty factor (ƞ), which are the most connected parameters to be controlled by the EDM process over machining specifications such as material removal rate (MRR) and tool wear rate(TWR) and characteristics of surface integrity such as average surface roughness (Ra) and also to quantify them.
In this paper the experiments have been conducted by using Taguchi Methodology with the DOE techniques and developed a mathematical model to predict material removal rate & average surface roughness using input parameters such as pulse on(Ton),pulse off (Toff) , current (I), voltage (V).
