The aim of this research work is to analyze the significant of process variables and find the optimum process variables in electric discharge machining (EDM) of Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) .The variables considered are peak current, pulse-on-time and pulse-off-time where as the responses are Material Removal Rate(MRR) and Surface Roughness(SR). MITSUBISHI EA8 spark erosion machine is employed for this work and copper tungsten electrode of ∅14 mm is used in experimental trials. The experimental runs are done based on Taguchi L27 orthogonal array. The signal-to-noise ratio, the analysis of variance (ANOVA), regression analysis and Genetic algorithm are used to determine the optimal levels of machining parameters on Metal removal rate and Surface roughness. Confirmation tests also done with the optimal levels of machining variables. Comparison of Taguchi’s and Genetic algorithm were employed to analyze the effective optimum value.
Key words: EDM / Ti–6Al–4V alloy / Peak current / Pulse-on-time / Taguchi method
