This book provides the knowledge and insight into the fundamental aspects of Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) processes and various hybrid machining technologies derived to improve the machining efficiencies. Fundamental theory of material removal, recent research trends and future research directions have been covered in each chapter. After explaining EDM, Dry and Near-dry EDM processes, Electrochemical Spark Machining, Arc Machining processes, Electric Discharge Hybrid-Turning processes, Electrical Discharge Grinding, Electric Discharge Milling, and various assisted EDM processes have been discussed. Finally, modeling and simulation of hybrid machining processes are also included.
- The book reflects the recent developments and trends in electric discharge hybrid machining processes.
- It covers in detail the basics of EDM, various hybrid and assistive technologies in EDM.
- It includes the updated discussion on the significance of process parameters in various hybrid EDM processes.
- An overview of modelling and simulation of hybrid EDM process is provided.
This book is aimed at Graduate students, researchers in manufacturing engineering, production engineering, and materials engineering.
