Abstract

Experimental investigation of ultrasonic assisted micro electro discharge machining was performed by introducing ultrasonic vibration to workpiece. The Taguchi experimental design has been applied to investigate the optimal combinations of process parameters to maximize the material removal rate and minimize the tool wear. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed and signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio was determined to know the level of importance of the machining parameters. Based on ANOVA, ultrasonic vibration at 60% of the peak power with capacitance of 3300 PF was found to be significant for best MRR. The machining time plays a significant role in the tool wear. The results were confirmed experimentally at 95% confidence interval.
