Electric spark discharge machining has been observed to produce severe damage in the form of kinking and slip in single crystals of high-purity zinc. A mechanism by which conditions of plastic anisotropy, relatively high machining temperatures and loading from spark discharge machining interact to produce this damage is proposed. A method for preventing the damage is explained.
