Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Rotary abrasive electrodischarge machining (RAEDM) and its variant processes have the potential of successfully machining difficult-to-cut materials. The development of the RAEDM and related preliminary studies has been reported at the previous NAMRC. However, the RAEDM process mechanism and performance characteristics are far from well understood or established. This paper presents a thermal model to analyze the self-dressing phenomenon in RAEDM, which takes place because of spark discharges. Experimental results confirm the presence and effect of self-dressing in RAEDM.
