Abstract

Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is one of the most common non-traditional processes for the manufacture of high precision parts and complex shapes. The EDM process depends on the heat energy between the work material and the tool electrode. This study focused on the material removal rate (MRR), the surface roughness, and tool wear in a 304 stainless steel EDM. The composite electrode consisted of copper (Cu) and silicon carbide (SiC). The current effects imposed on the working material, as well as the pulses that change over time during the experiment. When the current used is (8, 5, 3, 2, 1.5) A, the pulse time used is (12, 25) μs and the size of the space used is (1) mm. Optimum surface roughness under a current of 1.5 A and the pulse time of 25 μs with a maximum MRR of 8 A and the pulse duration of 25 μs.
