Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is one of the most extensively disseminated manufacturing technologies, in particular as regards the generation of precise and difficult geometrical shapes on hard metallic components. The objective of this paper is to Study on Effect of Powder Mixed dielectric in EDM of Inconel 718. The effect of various powder mixed in dielectric is studied input parameters like Duty cycles, current, pulse on time and powder media in that Silicon carbide, Aluminium oxide, Graphite powder used. Machining characteristics measured in terms of Material removal rate, tool wear rate. To obtain the optimal process parameter combination, optimization is carried out by the Signal-to-Noise (S/N) ratio analysis of Taguchi method using L18 Orthogonal Array.
