Summary

The process of electrochemical wire cutting can be a cost-effective industrial potential in dealing with difficult-to-cut materials. This article presents the outcome of an experimental investigation into the parameter influence on EC wire cutting in an endeavour to combine minimum energy consumption with dimensional accuracy of cut. The process will then resolve into either “Slitting” or “Component Profiling”. A simple model for the action of cutting was adopted to estimate the width of cut, the values of electrolysing current and material removal rate for various parameters. Both analytical and experimental results proved the beneficial influence of increased feed rates regarding the desirable reduced width. of cut. Optimum feed rates for circular and rectangular shape wires with different sizes were defined.
