Abstract

An investigation was made for application of ultrasonic vibration in electro discharge machining (EDM) and wire EDM, and only the vibration of wire was found to have been applied on WEDM. This paper studied on the effect of workpiece vibration to the WEDM process. The horizontal vibration of Ti-6Al-4V was applied on the rough cutting process of WEDM to study the variation of kerf width, machining rate and surface roughness. The results show that the workpiece vibration of WEDM has different effect with the wire vibration, which can improve the machining rate and kerf width, but increase the surface roughness.
