Analysis of Machinability on WEDM Processed Titanium Alloy with Coated Electrodes
In the present study, an attempt has been made to analyze the effects of wire electrical machining process on machining high-strength titanium alloy with the coated wire electrodes under different process parameters combinations. Brass wire electrode and zinc diffused coated electrode have been taken as electrodes to investigate material removal rate and surface roughness. From the experimental investigation, it has been observed that the conventional brass wire electrode has produced higher material removal rate. Histogram analysis shows that the zinc diffused brass wire electrode can produce lower surface roughness.
