Review Q 26.8: How does increasing discharge current affect metal removal rate and surface finish in electric discharge machining? Answer . As discharge current increases, metal removal rate increases and surface finish is degraded. Review Q 26.12: Name the four principal steps in chemical machining. Answer . The four steps are (1) cleaning, (2) masking, (3) etching, and (4) demasking. Review Q 26.15: ( Video ) What are the three layers of a part’s surface after undergoing EDM? Answer .
