PMEDM, dielectric fluid, thermal erosion, Material Removal Rate, Surface Roughness, Tool Wear Ratio.


In nonconventional material removal process power mixed electrical discharge machining (PMEDM) the recent trend for the enhancement of machining physiognomies such as Material Removal Rate (MRR), Surface Roughness (SR) and Tool Wear Ratio (TWR) when the commercial power additives in liquid and gaseous dielectric fluids are used in process. Through electrolysis created the pre-breakdown phase in water is categorised by the formation of many small hydrogen bubbles. In a gaseous medium, the buntings circulate more easily and then these bubbles can enable the breaking process. In oil, no bubbles are observed. So, in the gap of electrodes and workpiece some particles boosted due to the break process in oil
