...-discharge machining (micro-EDM) is a well-established micromanufacturing process and has been at the center of research for the last few decades. However, it has its own limitations. The limitations are primarily due to the requirement of a tool and electric potential between the tool and the workpiece...

...Zhenyuan Jia; Lingxuan Zhang; Fuji Wang; Wei Liu The property of high frequency in micro-EDM (electrical discharge machining) causes the discharge states to vary much faster than in conventional EDM, and discharge states of micro-EDM have the characteristics of nonstationarity, nonlinearity...

... a substantial amount of research on electrode wear and the compensation for EDM processes. In this study, a novel control method for a micro-EDM process using discharge pulse counting is proposed. The method is based on the proportional relationship between the removed workpiece volume and the number...

... as a function of process parameters. Assuming the normal distribution of surface heights, the μ and σ ( R q ) of the surface profile are evaluated after every spark. The model was further extended to capture the role of debris in micro-EDM in changing electric potential at the micropeaks on the cathode surfaces...
