Parameter Optimization Of Wire Electrical Discharge Machining For Minimum Surface Roughness And Kerf Width Using Taguchi Method

In this paper, the cutting of SS302 material using Wire electro discharge machining (EDM) with Molybdenum electrode by using Taguchi methodology has been reported. The Taguchi method is used to formulate the experimental layout and to analyze the effect of each parameter on the machining characteristics. Optimum level of process parameters like current, pulse-on time and pulse-off time that would yield optimum response of surface roughness and kerf width are determined. Percentage contribution of the process parameters is calculated using ANOVA.It is found that pulse off time is significant factor for surface roughness, while pulse on time is significant factor for kerf width.
