Abstract Coated tools have improved the performance of both traditional and nontraditional machining processes and have resulted in improved machining characteristics. However, a study on the performance of coated tools in micromachining, particularly in ECM, has not yet been adequately conducted. One possible reason is the difficulties associated with the preparation of coated microtools. This paper describes a method of preparation of nickel coated tungsten microtools by electrodeposition and reports on the performance of these tools in microECM experiments. The tungsten microtool was electroplated with nickel with direct and pulse current. The effect of the various input parameters on the coating characteristics was studied and performance of the coated microtool was evaluated in pulse ECM. The coated tool removed more material than the uncoated tool under similar conditions and was more electrochemically stable. It was concluded that nickel coated tungsten microtool can improve the pulse ECM performance.

Electrochemical discharge machining (ECDM) is a spark-based micromachining method especially suitable for the fabrication of various microstructures on nonconductive materials, such as glass and some engineering ceramics. However, since the spark discharge frequency is drastically reduced as the machining depth increases ECDM microhole drilling has confronted difficulty in achieving uniform geometry for machined holes. One of the primary reasons for this is the difficulty of sustaining an adequa...

Abstract In this paper, the performance of uncoated-WC/Co and TiAlN–PVD coated-carbide twist drills were investigated when drilling titanium alloy, Ti–6Al4V. The effect of cutting speed on tool wear, tool life and surface finish of the hole when drilling using coolant were reported. Results showed that non-uniform flank wear, chipping and catastrophic failure were the dominant modes of tool failure for both coated- and uncoated-drills. It was found that at all cutting speeds tested, TiAlN-coated...
(Bi1-xSbx)2Te3 thermoelectric thin films were deposited on stainless steel discs in 1 M perchloric acid and 0.1 M tartaric acid by pulse electrodeposition in order to optimize the grain growth. The influence of the electrolyte composition, the cathodic current density and the cathodic pulse time on film stoichiometry were studied. The results show that it is necessary to increase the Sb content in the electrolyte to obtain the (Bi0.25Sb0.75)2Te3 film stoichiometry. Pulse plating reduced the grai...

This paper deals with a slender micropin, which can be used for micromachining. The shaping mechanism in electrochemical etching is investigated on the basis of electrochemical kinetics. The pin profile can be controlled by adjusting the current and voltage level. A mathematical model is derived for controlling the diameter of the micropin.

Both n- and p-type bismuth telluride thin films have been deposited by co-evaporator on glass substrates. The conditions for deposition have been investigated as a function of substrate temperature (Ts) and flux ratio (Fr=F(Bi)/F(Te)) and optimised to achieve a high thermoelectric power factor. The quality of the deposited films, e.g. structure, composition and morphology, has been examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA), and atomic force microscope (AFM).

Abstract The thermoelectric, electric and structural properties of Bi 2 Te 3 thin films grown by MOCVD have been investigated. The Seebeck coefficient shows that all the samples were n-type conductors decreasing from 213 to 129 μV/K when the carrier concentration increases from 9×10 19 to 3×10 20 cm −3 . For high substrate temperature, good orientation of crystallites has been observed which can be directly related to the best values of Seebeck coefficient found. Hall effect has been studied in ...

Electrochemical micromachining (ECMM) is a non-traditional micro-fabrication technology developed to produce complex geometries on very hard and electrically conducting surfaces. Typical applications of ECMM include aerospace components, medical devices and gas turbine blades. Duplex stainless steel 2205 (DSS 2205) is an exceptional corrosion-resistant iron alloy with a nearly identical volume of austenite and ferrite. In the present work, ECMM was employed to produce a series of through micro-h...

Abstract Traditional drilling is still not appropriate for working with Inconel625 and Inconel718 alloys, since such metals become hard to remove substances. The aim of this article is really to evaluate the two separate metals from empirical data of the micro electrochemical machining (μ-ECM) process on overcut. The overcut was most much a concern when alloys were extracted during machining. Unconventional scientific data is derived from studies unless the authors are using the same instruments...

Abstract Electrochemical machining (ECM) is one of the most efficient non-traditional machining processes used to provide a bright surface finish, machine difficult-to-cut materials and manufacture complex shapes. However, due to some challenges, such as the lack of dimensional accuracy, process monitoring and control and environmental factors, implementation of the ECM process has been limited. This study presents the effects of two dedicated ECM parameters, feed rate and electrical conductivit...

Often burrs are termed as perennial thorns, real productivity killers and production engineer’s headache. These burrs are the thin ridges, projections, loose metal pieces that develop during production operation like turning, milling, drilling, sheet metal operations, etc. Workman injury, short circuits, and assembly problems were reported while handling parts with burrs during machining. In hydraulic and pneumatic systems burrs and metal pieces can alter the flow conditions, which may result in...

ABSTRACTDay-to-day interest is growing in the drilling of high aspect-ratio deep microholes in various hard-to-machine and newer materials. Besides cost-effectiveness in the manufacturing process, an accurate dimension with the good surface finish is essential for microhole drilling. The conventional methods encounter various problems such as residue stresses, heat generation near cutting zone, high tool-wear, etc. Electrochemical microdrilling (ECMD) is one of the cost-effective techniques, pro...
