Method And Apparatus For Fabricating High Aspect Ratio Micro-Electrode

DetailsDownloadable Content
1. Technology Overview

A method for on-machine fabrication of a high aspect ratio micro-electrode utilizing an EDM apparatus including processing device capable of processing coordinate information, the method comprising of calibrating said electrical discharge machining apparatus for performing micro Electrical Discharge Machining, dividing a sacrificial block serving as a tool electrode into operational regions, a rough machining region, a semi-finishing and finishing on a workpiece electrode mounted on a rotate-able tol electrode head that is moveable in a three dimensional space by a Cartesian positioning mechanism; and measuring the workplace electrode diameter intermittently while the workpiece electrode is still mounted on the rotatable tool electrode head utilizing coordinate information of a workpiece electrode when the workpiece electrode makes contact with a gauge block secured to a portion of a work table.
