Electrical discharge machining is a non-traditional machining process that involved a transient spark discharges through the fluid due to the potential difference between the electrode and the work piece. Improper choose of electrode material in EDM may result highly poor machining performance and electrode wear that would increase the cost of production. This papers reviews research for optimization of various parameters in the experimentation on EDM by using Taguchi Method as a Design of Experiment and response for Tool Wear Rate(TWR).In the study main objectives of the best selection of electrode material for EDM machining provides longer tool life, lower tool wear and machining accuracy.
