Economic Use of Electrical Discharge Machining for Research, Production, and Tooling Through the Design and Construction of Low Cost Electrodes 650021
The author discusses the use of electrical discharge machining in research, production, and tool work. Specific considerations determining the selection of proper electrode design and construction particulars to fit a need are presented. Illustrations depicting the use of EDM electrodes in production and tooling are included.
Specific advantages to be realized by proper use of EDM are outlined. A truly economic, high quality die can be obtained through use of EDM when the tool engineer makes proper use of this technique.
