WEDM of Microstructured Component Parts - Heat Conduction Model

1999 International Journal of Electrical Machining  
Microsystems are devices and small machines based on microtechniques which combine mechanical, chemical, physical or electronic functions. Microsystems are usually produced using mass production techniques originated from silicon technology. Alternatives are hereby offered by electrical discharge machining (EDM). Since considerable deficits in terms of technological developments exist in the field of micro-EDM, this paper sets out to investigate the application of micro-WEDM to the production
