This experimental study helps to analyze the performance characteristics of ultrasonic vibration assisted EDM process. The objective of the present work was to investigate the effect low frequency vibration given to workpiece which taken as an input factor with other parameters of WEDM on the cutting speed and surface roughness of machining process. This happened with the help of fixture and vibration actuator. By the help of this vibration unit vibration produced to the workpiece, this vibration removed the debris fast and our cutting speed increased. And with increasing speed the surface roughness minimized. The working ranges and levels of the WEDM process parameters are found from literature survey to investigate the effects of wire WEDM we use Taguchi Method.
