Abstract

In order to reduce the debris stagnation in the kerf in wire electrical discharge machining (EDM), a new jet flushing method using tilting nozzle to wire running direction is investigated, based on the simulation results of flow field obtained by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. As a result, the tilting nozzle could decrease the debris stagnation area, and the removal rate could be improved.
