Paper Abstract

In order to fabricate the micro mould cavities with complex structures on 304 stainless steel, laser-assisted electrochemical micromachining (EMM) based on surface modification by fiber laser masking was studied,and a new device of laser-assisted EMM was developed. Laser marking on the surface of 304 stainless steel can first be realized by fiber laser heating scanning. Through analysis of X ray diffraction analysis (XRD), metal oxide layer with predefined pattern can be formed by laser marking, and phase transformation can also occur on the 304 stainless steel surface, which produce the laser masking layer with corrosion resistance. The stainless steel surface with laser masking layer is subsequently etched by EMM, the laser masking layer severs as the temporary protective layer without relying on lithography mask, the fabrication of formed electrodes is also avoided, so micro pattern cavities can fast be fabricated. The impacts on machining accuracy during EMM with laser masking were discussed to optimize machining parameters, such as machining voltage, electrolyte concentration, duty cycle of pulse power supply and electrode gap size, the typical mould cavities 23μm deep were fabricated under the optimized parameters.
