Abstract. The article presents an analysis of the impact of electrode material and its roughness on the surface roughness of a machined surface. An Inconel 718 element was machined with four different electrodes with constant machining parameters. It was proved that under certain conditions there is a relationship between the roughness of an electrode and a machined surface. The research results show that considering the quality of a machined surface, the copper alloy electrode gives the highest predictability of roughness parameters.
