By considering the unique performances, the Powder Mixed Electrical Discharge Machining (PMEDM) mostly encounter choice for machining the hard materials with job features like intricate shapes with grater accuracy and those materials are difficult to cut in conventional machining processes. This Research aimed to prepare parameter index chart for machining nickel based super alloy - Inconel 800 for various requirements. To achieve the aim, In this experimental study on machining of Inconel 800 in PMEDM with electrolyte copper electrode as well as silver coated electrolyte copper electrode is focused. Taguchi full factorial design derived from MINITAB release-16 software was used to design the experimentation. The factors like pulse off time, Current and Pulse on Time were considered. The responses like amount of Tool Wear, Quantity of material removal, surface finishes were noted against each case. In the same experimental conditions the coated electrode increased the MRR by 36.67% with minor increment of maximum surface roughness to 16.11%.
