Micro Machining of E-Glass-Fibre-Epoxy Composite using Electro Chemical Discharge Machining

ABSTRACT: There is a constantly increasing demand for engineering materials having properties superior to those possessed by customary engineering materials. However, high values of these properties make it more difficult to shape these materials by machining using conventional methods, thereby limiting their widespread applications. Electrochemical machining (ECM) and electro discharge machining(EDM) are the two electrically assisted advanced machining processes which are well established, and are being successfully used in industries for the production of components made of low machinability but electrically conducting materials. The requirement of work piece materials to possess some minimum electrical conductivity is a major limitation of these processes. To overcome this constraint a hybrid process has been conceived, in which the phenomenon of electro chemical spark is employed for material removal from electrically non-conducting materials.
