Method and apparatus for straightening the wire electrode of an electrical discharge machining apparatus

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4298782.

An EDM method and apparatus for cutting a workpiece by a wire electrode in the form of a metallic tape or wire, in which the traction exerted on the wire electrode by the mechanism feeding the wire electrode in the machining zone between the wire electrode and the workpiece is modified momentarily, and the variation of machining rate caused by the momentary modification of the force of traction exerted on the wire electrode is detected. The direction in which the machining rate is changed provides an indication of the effect, on the wire electrode, of the transverse forces which deflect the wire in the machining zone, relative to its longitudinal axis. The direction in which the machining rate varies is used to select the direction in which a predetermined machining parameter affecting the transverse forces applied on the wire electrode is changed, such as to maintain the wire electrode properly aligned along its longitudinal axis.
