Die Manufacture by Electrical Discharge Machining
The electrical discharge machining (EDM) process is used for machining dies because of its ability to machining difficult geometries or materials with poor machinability. This article provides a discussion on the fundamentals of electrical discharge erosion and the principles of EDM and orbital-movement EDM. It discusses various aspects of wire EDM in machining dies and provides an overview of the materials used in EDM electrodes. The article concludes with a discussion on electrochemical machining.
