Predictive Modeling and Process Parameter Prediction for Monel 400 Wire Electrical Discharge Machining for rocket frames
Many researchers are compelled to conduct multiple systematic evaluation studies for various manufacturing operations due to Monel 400's numerous applications and desirable properties. Nickel-based alloys, particularly Monel 400, are gaining popularity in a variety of extreme temperature applications such as frames and skins for rocket aeroplanes due to their exceptional mechanical properties and high corrosion resistance. These materials are particularly difficult to machine using traditional manufacturing techniques due to their tendency for rapid work hardening and low thermal conductivity. In this exploratory study, the machinability performance of Monel 400 was investigated by incorporating pulse on duration, pulse off duration, and applied current as independent factors at three levels. The single response analysis of Taguchi is used to investigate the effect of process parameters on the desired output variables.
