Introduction of Electric Discharge Machining (EDM)Electric discharge machining (EDM) is a manufacturing process whereby a wanted shape of anobject of workpiece is obtained using electrical discharges (sparks). The material removal fromthe workpiece occurs by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between twoelectrodes, separated by adielectricliquidand subject to an electricvoltage. There are 2 typesof EDM machine that being used for this semester. There are;
EDM Wire Cutb)EDM Die SinkingIntroduction of EDM Wire Cut MachineIn wire EDM a very wire serves as the electrode. Special brass wires are typically used; the wireis slowly fed through the material and the electrical discharge actually cut the work piece. Wirecut EDM is usually performed in a bath of water.The wire itself does not actually touch the metal to be cut; the electrical discharges actuallyremove small amounts of material and allow the wire to be moved through the workpiece.Introduction of EDM Die Sinking MachineEDM die sinking machine consists of an electrode and workpiece that are submerged in aninsulating liquid such oil or, less frequently, other dielectric fluids. The electrode and workpieceare connected to a suitable power supply.As the electrode approaches the workpiece, dielectric breakdown occurs in the fluid forming aplasma channel and a small spark jumps. These sparks usually strike one at a time because itis very unlikely that different locations in the inter-electrode space have the very identical localelectrical charachetistics which would enable a spark to occur simultaneously in all suchlocations.The EDM die sinking process is most widely used by the mould-making tool anddieindustries,but is becoming a common method of making prototype and production parts, especially in theaerospace, automobile and electronics industries in which production quantities are relativelylow.
