Abstract

Electrochemical Machining with a rotating electrode (ECM-RE) is a simple, inexpensive, and efficient method of conducting ECM. ECM-RE may attain high machining rates and surface quality, but this is limited by the onset of electrical discharges within the gap between the tool and workpiece electrodes. This paper develops a mathematical model of the ECM-RE process and implements this model in a computer simulation. This simulation allows the user to choose a maximum practical tool feed rate for ECM-RE given the input parameters of inter-electrode gap size, pressure, and temperature. The computer simulation described here is useful to the researcher in ECM-RE as well as the industrial practitioner.
