Abstract

The geometrical accuracy of the machined surface can generally be understood mainly as accuracy of shape, orientation, position and run-out. As a general rule; it is quantified by the corresponding deviations from the nominal area. The size of the geometric deviation from the nominal area may in practice affect the conventionally measured value of the dimension, even if the required dimensional tolerance is adhered to. Since electro–erosive machining technology belongs to very precise finishing technologies; even the small geometrical accuracy deviation has a negative impact on the resulting quality of machined surfaces. The aim of the experiments was to contribute to the knowledge database, which defines the influence of the process parameters at electrical discharge machining with the CuZn37 tool electrode on errors of geometrical accuracy of the machined surface. On the basis of the results of the experimental measurements, graphical dependencies were determined which predict geometrical accuracy of the machined surface in terms of the maximum deviation of flatness after electrical discharge machining of tool steel EN X30WCrV9-3 (W.-Nr. 1.2581) with CuZn37 wire electrode of 0.20 mm diameter to determine the appropriate combination of process parameters.
