Abstract
To analyse the effect of outflow modes during making micro-dimples using the modified through-mask electrochemical machining with filled inter-electrode gap, some investigations were carried out numerically and experimentally. The studies showed that, the reflux discharging mode (RDM), which allows most of the electrolyte and electrolytic products to flow out through the holes arranged inside the cathode, can produce fairly more homogeneous flow field and smoother mass transfer during machining, compared with the conventional mode in which the electrolyte and electrolytic products can be discharged only from the inter-electrode gap. Micro-dimples generated on the basis of RDM show a flat bottom feature without island defect and smooth surfaces as well as good dimension uniformity.
