Abstract

In fine wire electrical discharge machining (EDM), oil has been recently used as dielectric working fluid instead of conventional deionized water for more precise machining. However, the influence of physical and electrical properties of the working oil on wire EDM characteristics has not been clarified sufficiently. This study investigated the influence of working oil viscosity on wire EDM characteristics. The results showed that removal rate becomes higher and machined surface roughness becomes larger with the increase of working oil viscosity.
