Analysis of the Influence of Different EDM Parameters Using Taguchi Technique


Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a non-traditional material removal process developed in late 1940s has now become the most important technology in manufacturing industries. Taguchi technique has been applied for design of experiments with three input factors and their trinity levels utilizing L9 orthogonal array. The nine specimens were machined with different electrodes material where AISI 304 stainless steel had been used as a workpiece with kerosene as dielectric fluid. The major aim of this study is the evaluation to choice the principle specifications of electrical discharge machining with the assist of Taguchi technique and utilizing Minitab program in condition of material removal rate and electrode wear rate. The variance conditions examined during production the research on electrical discharge machining would be the electrodes material, current and workpiece thickness. The effect of each parameters and excellent performance variables will be achieve by means of ANOVA examination and conformed by investigation to enhance method.
