Optimization Of ECM Parameters For Machining Ti-6Al-6V-2Sn

[Full Text]



Pankaj, S.S. Banwait






Electrochemical machining described as reversed electroplating process is a non-contact process wherein the formation of shape is look alike to the tool shape. Primacy of the ECM to machine conductive materials, over other processes lies in its ability to produce complicated shapes without stress, while requiring minimal finishing work. This research is concerned with ECM of Ti 6Al-6V-2Sn alloy using NaNO3 electrolyte. Experimental design for Process parameters i.e. voltage, tool feed rate, electrolyte flow rate and electrolyte concentration is done using RSM and response parameters i.e. MRR, Overcut, Ra has been optimized by using the ANOVA. The regression models are developed to be used as predictive tools. Diagnosis plots are developed to validate the regression models. Research results can be realized in pragmatic sense while selecting parameters for machining in field work.
