Abstract

One of the progressive production technologies through which it is possible to machine complicated shapes in materials characterized by high hardness is electrical discharge machining with a wire electrode. However, as with other progressive technologies, in the case of electrical discharge machining technology, demanding customer requirements for the geometric accuracy of the machined surface are not always met. These errors occur for various reasons. These are, for example, the vibrations of the wire tool electrode, its destruction during the machining process, the setting of technological and process parameters, but also errors in the design of the machine and the software control of the tool path. These and other errors have a primary role in the emergence of geometric inaccuracy of the machined surface after electrical discharge machining with a wire tool electrode. A special problem in the case of electrical discharge technology is the machining of internal and external cylindrical surfaces. As a result of the mentioned causes, deviations occur during their machining, which subsequently cause problems for the manufactured products during their assembly as well as the operation itself. Therefore, the objective of the experimental research was to identify the extent of these geometric deviations on the inner and outer cylindrical surfaces during electrical discharge machining with a wire tool electrode.
