Abstract

This chapter provides the inclusive overview of the microelectrical discharge machining (micro-EDM) process, including the differences between EDM and micro-EDM, details of system components, and micro-EDM process parameters. The performance characteristics of micro-EDM are also discussed. An experimental investigation of the microhole drilling process of Ti-6Al-4V is carried out, implementing four innovative machining strategies such as the effects of polarity changing between the electrodes, ...
