Abstract : This work investigates drilling of small holes of Ø 3 mm on duplex Stainless Steel. Its machinability index is very low (0.66) as compared to other steels, hence Electrical Discharge Machine is used. The input parameters are Current, Spark Gap & Di electric Pressure. Each input parameter is considered for 3 levels. Therefore total number of experiments is 3×3×3 – 27. To reduce the number of runs, Taguchi L9 orthogonal array is used, which is having advantage of maximum and minimum trial runs in its design. The output response is metal removal rate. To find the best operating parameter, the regression model of ANOVA is given to input of MAT Lab-Genetic Algorithm. The experimental results indicated that models are significant. The test result indicated that the contributions of current is 42.42%, Di electric pressure is 35.36% and Spark gap is 1.93% on metal removal rate. From Genetic Algorithm it is observed among three levels of factors, lower value of current and Di electric pressure produced maximum metal removal rate. The SS 2205 has wide variety of applications such as high pressure components, control valves etc., which are having large number of components to it. Hence performing micro holes on such high hardness alloy is useful.
