    Abstract :

    Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) alloy is an valuable material for aerospace, automotive, biomedical, marine, chemical processing, power generation, oil and gas extraction industries. These materials have excellent properties such as high strength-to-weight ratio, fine resistance to creep and fatigue, superior corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. However, Titanium alloys (Ti-6Al-4V) alloy is always to be difficult-to-cut materials by conventional machining processes. In this study, boron carbide (B4C) abrasives mixed kerosene fluid is used to drill blind holes in Ti-6Al-4V work piece. Important electrical parameters and B4C concentration in kerosene oil are varied as per L27 orthogonal array of Taguchi method to measure the material removal rate (MRR) of the material.
