Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a new type of wire electrode, in which piano wire with very high tensile strength is coated with electrically conductive layer, such as brass or zinc, in order to attain high speed and high precision wire EDM. In this report, using a trial-made thin wire of 50μm in diameter, the optimum thickness and quality of brass layer were experimentally investigated for higher performance fine wire EDM. Furthermore, the influence of the tensile strength of piano wire used as a core wire was discussed. As a result, the coated brass with copper content of 60-70% is effective and the thickness of coated brass is needed to be more than 1.45μm for high removal rate.
