  • Patent number: 6086684
    Abstract: A surface treating is performed by an electric discharge. The electric discharge is generated by applying a voltage between an electrode and a metal workpiece. The electrode is a solid or green compact electrode or the like which is made of a reforming material. The workpiece may be an end mill or the like. Then, a coating layer is formed on a surface of the metal workpiece. Thereafter, a nitriding treatment is performed on the coating layer in a nitriding vessel or the like. Thus, a hard coating layer of better quality is formed on the surface of the workpiece whether a material of the workpiece is steel or hard metal.

  • Patent number: 5858479
    Abstract: A surface treating method uses an electric discharge machining to form a coating layer having strong adhesion and excellent characteristics on a metal surface such as a hard metal. A discharge electrode is formed by powders containing metal hydride. Electric discharge is generated in a working fluid containing carbon between the discharge electrode and a workpiece. Thus, a coating layer of the metal hydride is formed on a surface of the workpiece.

  • Patent number: 5804789
    Abstract: A surface treating apparatus rotates a rotating tool and moves a surface treating electrode relative to the tool via a rotating shaft driver and a Z-axis driver. A power source applies voltage to generate an electric discharge between the tool and the electrode, thereby forming a reforming layer on a peripheral flank and a rake face of the tool.

  • Patent number: 4980036
    Abstract: An ultrasonic machining method comprises the steps of causing a machining solution to readily produce a gas in the machining solution, supplying the machining solution around a workpiece to be machined, and producing an ultrasonic vibration to carry out an ultrasonic machining operation, wherein the gas is produced during the machining operation so that a machined surface of the workpiece is prevented from being degraded by the occurrence of cavitation. An ultrasonic machining apparatus comprise a heater for heating the machining solution or a DC power source for electrolyzing the machining solution.
