Analysis and diagnosis of the quality of discharge in the electrical discharge machining process. Análisis y diagnóstico de la calidad de la descarga en el proceso de electroerosión por hilo (1/UPV00146.363-T-15319/2003)

  • Lead researcher: Itziar Cabanes Axpe - (01/12/2005 - 30/11/2007)
  • Funding body: University of the Basque Country

The main aim of this project is to determine the quality of discharge in wire electrical discharge machining from a database created with a comprehensive set of experiences in both stable and degraded regimes. The project focuses on the study and description of the quality of discharge so that in the future, the control system of the machine is capable of detecting the tendency of the process early and can correct the malfunctioning in advance. Thus, based on previous results (Project “Empirical modelling...

Modelling distributed control systems based on XML to integrate COT tools (DPI2003-02399)

  • Lead researcher: Marga Marcos - (01/12/2003 - 30/12/2006)
  • Funding body: Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation

The aim of this project is to develop methodologies and tools to design and develop distributed control systems (DCS) with a high degree of flexibility, reliability, and reuse of developed applications. The great progress that has occurred in recent years, both for hardware systems specific to control (PLCs, industrial computers, industrial fieldbuses, controllers, etc.) and for multidisciplinary COTS tools (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) (code analysis, simulation and generation in different areas of knowledge) offers great...

Empirical modelling of wire electrical discharge machining to optimise the quality of discharge. Modelado empírico del proceso de Electroerosión por Hilo para la Optimización de la Calidad de las descargas (OD02UN45)

  • Lead researcher: Marga Marcos - (17/10/2003 - 06/10/2005)
  • Funding body: Basque Government (SAIOTEK call) and ONA-ELECTROEROSIÓN

The main aim of this project is to obtain empirical modelling of wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) by implementing a series of experimental tests for different cutting regimes and for different workpiece thicknesses. For this, we define an acquisition and dignosis system performed on an industrial WEDM. The aim of such a system is  to analyse a wide range of tests in order to detect a set of key variables that allow us to foresee the wire breakage and instability of the process.
