Abstract

There are situations when for distinct reasons, a process of threading by electrical discharge machining has to be applied. In order to materialize an electrical discharge threading process, an analysis of the information available in the specialty literature and in industrial practice was developed. The analysis revealed the possibility to design a device for electrical discharge threading adapted on a ram electrical discharge machine. On this base, a device including a ball screw and a gear mechanism was designed. The device transforms the rectilinear work motion of the machine tool head into a rotation motion and a rectilinear feed of the tool electrode.
