They concluded that the spike volume is largely governed by the feed rate, hole diameter, and taper angle. After machining, the workpieces are parted off by removing the solder. As these metals possesses good acid resistant properties and good electrical conductivity. For this purpose experi- mental electro stream drilling machine has been electtostream and fabricated. An im- provement in process reliability is realized as tool insulation would be eliminated. ECM is considered as an efficient process for machining complicated shapes in any hard and electrically conductive material.

The 3-phase V A. It is seen from the figure that correlation between theoretical and experimental results is quite good. Electrolyte supplying system, 4.

Electrostream Drilling Of High Speed Steel

They found that machined hole diameter increases with in- crease in machining time. The complex designs associated with the jet engine hardware have posed 1 machining problems which are beyond the capabilities eleectrostream conventional machin- ing processes.

This is due to an increase in concentration of electrolyte which leads to increase in its electrical conductivity.

Most of the industrial applications involve hole making in these mate- rials. Polarity is reversed for a short period of time as a result the deposit is removed and electrolyte flow is restored. Passivating electrolytes like NaCloz can be helpful in achieving good dimensional ac- curacy of the machined hole. The chamber is provided with 12 V D. Exper- iments have electrosrteam performed with high speed steel HSS as work material.


This increase in diameter is attributed drklling to the stray current effect and ptirtly to the fact that this portion of the work piece is subjected for maximum period of time to electro-chemical dissolution throughout the machining operation [2]. Electro stream drilling ESD was found to be a potential process for drilling micro holes in these materials. During machining with bare tools and passivating electrolytes, a transpassive condition would exist at the small frontal gap while passive conditions are obtained along the sides of the holes.

Nozzle holding arrangement, 3. So acidic electrolyte HCl is used for machining: The following are the main objectives of the present work. The casing of the pump is made of gunmetal, which is partially anti 17 2.

Reproducibility plot 36 ESD drilled holes have taper. In ESD, the current drawn during the machining is of the order of millie amperes that is very low.

It has been observed that material removal increases with in- crease in electrolyte concentration. The more familiar machining operations include turning, electrostteam, milling, planing, broaching and grinding.

The nozzle is also heat treated to impart additional strength to sustain the pressure of incoming acidic electrolyte. At the bottom of crilling hole due to large gap, the current density would decrease, with the result that comparatively lower overcut low mix takes place and hence the profile gets twisted towards the center.

July, Acknowledgement I take this opportunity to express the feeling of sincere gratitude tov’. The figure shows that the machined holes have conical profile i. Processes for machining such hard and brittle ma- terials are grouped under the common name of Unconventional machining or Non — traditional machining processes. In the present work acidic electrolyte HCl is employed for machining of the work material.


S also the thick black passivating film formation is supposed to be the cause of reduction in material removal in z-axis direction. It is evident from the figure that the material removal incrca. The work vice is supported by the work table, which is fixed frilling the base of the machining chamber. To meet the demands of technologically advanced industries like aeronautic, nuclear, gas-turbineautomobile, rapid developments have taken place in the field of material science to develope the materials having better properties in terms of strength, hardness, and toughness at elevated temperatures.

But drilling of small holes with large aspect ratios is beyond the scope of Drilllng because of over cutting on account of sideway current flow. The magnitude of current will be more at higher concentration. The Basic components of a nozzle and its holding arrangement are as follows: At higher voltages the hole drilled in I IS. During expeumeutatiou fine feed is given to the tool manually. It is also considerably difficult to drill holes smaller than micrometer by conventional mechanical drilling.

This is done before taking weight of the work piece after ESD. It retains high hardness while cutting metal at very high speeds. Chapman and Hail London, Then the workpiece is dried under an electric bulb to completely remove any Icft-out traces of liquid from the machined blind hole.
