Abstract

Electrochemical grinding ECG is an important non-traditional or advanced manufacturing process that provides a better alternative or sometimes the only alternative in machining components of exotic materials (carbides, Hastalloy, etc.) commonly used in aerospace, automobile, and medical devices industries. This paper presents preliminary results of an experimental investigation carried out at GM's Allison Gas Turbine division on some aspects of the performance of ECG including the effect of workpiece grain size and feed rate on surface finish. The objectives of this on-going investigation is to develop a better understanding of ECG performance by deterministic and stochastic modeling and analyzing (wavelength decomposition) surface profiles.
