Micro-channel fabrication using Cu-sheets as electrode in EDM process and optimization of process parameters using Taguchi Method
Pages : 15-18
In this paper investigation of micro-channels fabrication using electrode sheets has been done. The micro-channels were fabricated on AISI D3 die steel using sheets of copper as electrode material. Parametric optimization for process parameters of EDM was done using Taguchi Method. The control parameters taken were Current, Pulse-On Time, Pulse-Off Time, and Voltage. Surface Roughness was taken as response parameter.
