What is it about?
This study researched the effects of machining parameters on surface roughness and material removal rate in the wire electrical discharge cutting of high-density Al/B4C metal matrix composites produced via the hot pressing method. Wire tension, reinforcement percentage, wire speed, pulse-on time and pulse-off time were set as the control factors. The Taguchi L18 (21 × 34) orthogonal array was used in the experiment design and determination of the optimum control factors. Variance analysis was applied to determine the effects of the control factors on the surface roughness and material removal rate.

Why is it important?
The effects of control factors in the use of WEDM for the machining of B4C particle-reinforced composites in particular were determined, thus compensating for the lack of coverage in the literature
