Electro-spark deposition technique is to release in high
frequency between metal electrode and base material.
Ionization taken place between metal electrode and
base material generates a channel, which, brings about
high-pressure micro areas as well as instant high
temperature on the surface of base material; Meanwhile,
micro electric field make ionic-state electrode material
infiltrate into the base material, resulting in metallurgical
combination. Electro-spark deposition technique is an
instant process converting from high temperature to
refrigeration; It is not welding, or coating, or element
infiltration, simply speaking, it is intervenient.
Studying change in surface metallurgical
properties and its effect on corrosion and wear
resistance by applying E.S.D. process.
• Understanding how conversion electrical power to perfect sparking
properties to accomplish the ESD principles.
• Buildup an electronically-controlled system to manage the process
variables (Voltage , Current , electrical capacitance , Spark duration ,
contact pressure and relative motion speed between electrode and
• Beginning work with DC supply then switch to national amplitude current
(50Hz) which has zero mean voltage. After that adding the capacitor to the
• Select base metal like turbine blades used in generators in power stations
and fixing degradation causes (corrosion , erosion and cracking . . . etc.)
• Depending on the above cases electrode alloy will be selected (usually
• Increasing the deposition rate and improving its quality depend on the
process variables which determined during work.
