TEXT The EDM Process
It is known to every machinist that electrical energy is
convert

ed into motion by an electric motor on standard machine tools. Recently, we have discovered that electrical energy can be directly employed in metal removal. The main advantage is that metal of any hardness can be

machined by electrical machining processes with good
surface finish.

Unit 20
Electrical discharge machining is a form of metal removal in which pulsating direct current is applied to a shaped tool (electrode) and a work-piece, both of which are capable of conducting electricity. The two are held close to each other with

a nonconducting fluid serving as an insulator between them.
When a voltage high enough to break down the insulator is reached, a spark jumps the gap between the tool and the workpiece. As a result, this spark removes a small portion of material.

Unit 20
The surface finish of a part produced on an EDM machine
depends on the size of the sparks generated between it and the electrode. Big, powerful sparks produce a rough surface and small, less powerful sparks produce a smooth surface. It is reported that metal removal rates and surface finish are controlled by the frequency and intensity of the spark. High frequency, low-intensity sparks result in a low metal removal

rate and produce a smooth finish. Low frequency, high-intensity
sparks result in rapid metal erosion and a coarse finish.

LEARN TO SPEAK
Mr.Zhang:Hello, Mr. Cheng.

Mr.Cheng:Hi, Mr. Zhang.
Mr.Zhang:What are you doing? Mr.Cheng:I am machining a work-piece. Mr.Zhang:But there is a flame on the work-piece. Is this a kind of method of welding? Mr.Cheng:It is EDM process. Mr.Zhang:What does the EDM mean? Mr.Cheng:It means electrical discharge machining, and it uses the electrical energy remove directly the metal of work-piece.

Unit 20
Mr.Zhang:How does it work? Mr.Cheng:When machining pulsating direct current is applied

to a shaped tool(electrode) and a work-piece, both of which are
capable of conducting electricity. When the two are close to each other, a powerful sparks will remove a small portion of material. Mr.Zhang:What is its advantage? Mr.Cheng:The main advantage is that it can machine metal of

any hardness and form a good surface finish.
Mr.Zhang:Oh, how nice it is. Thanks a lot. Mr.Cheng:Not at all.

Unit 20 READING MATERIAL

Electrical Machining
Most electrical machining processes have come about due to the development of space-age metal alloys that are tough and hard

to machine. Grinding cutting, and shaping with cutting tools are
exacting, time-consuming, and expensive processes on such alloys. In some cases, machining with conventional equipment is almost impossible. A material like tungsten carbide, for example, is very difficult to machine even with diamond cutting tools.

Unit 20
On standard machine tools, electrical energy is converted by an electric motor into motion that is transmitted through a series of shafts, pulleys, belts, and gears to a cutting tool. In contrast, the electrical machining processes make direct use of electrical energy. This results in certain abilities that are unique to these processes. These include machining metals of any hardness, machining without cutting forces, machining without tool rotation or without touching the workpiece, machining odd shapes, and machining

dissimilar metals without loading the tool.
Three major electrical machining processes are EDM (electrical discharge machining), ECM (electro chemical machining), and

ECG (electrochemical grinding).
