Modern Machining Methods and Machining of Advanced Ceramics by M. Adithan
Modern Machining Methods which are discussed in this book belong to the category on Non-Traditional Machining methods. In the early stages of development, the investigations in the area of "Modern Machining Methods" were almost purely academic in nature.
Today, the modern machining methods are no longer mere laboratory processes ; these processes have already entered many production lines. By modern machining methods, we mean : Spark erosion machining ,ultrasonic machining, chemical machining, electro-chemical machining, electro-chemical grinding, abrasive jet machining, plasma arc machining, electron beam machining and laser beam machining process.
These modern machining techniques have their own role and importance, we should not make the mistakes of imagining that they are going to throw overboard the many conventional techniques used in the past and today, Modern machining methods are not replacements for conventional methods. Modern machining methods are only complementary to existing methods of machining.
