Abstract

In micro EDM, simple-shaped tools are being used to machine complex 3D micro features because of the cost and difficulty in fabricating multiple complex-shaped micro electrodes. However, the tool wear adversely affects the accuracy of machined micro features. Therefore, a theoretical model for surface profile generation which takes into account the effect of tool wear is needed. This paper presents such a model and a simplified simulation algorithm. The experimental results of micro and macro EDM generated surface profiles confirm the validity of the proposed mathematical model and the simulation algorithm.
