Abstract: The two disadvantages of EDM are the low material removal rate (MRR) and poor surface quality. In this investigation, EDM assisted by magnetic field (MFEDM) has been proposed for the first time to overcome above-mentioned disadvantages. Constant magnetic field was applied to the both sides of discharge channel perpendicularly to form a novel process. In experiment, EDM machine tool D703F was used to machine nonferromagnetic materials. The machining parameters discharge current and pulse duration were chosen to…
