Water Jet Machining – Working Principle, Advantages and Disadvantages with Application

Water Jet Machining (WJM) also called water jet cutting, is a non-traditional machining process in which high-velocity jet of water is used to remove materials from the surface of the workpiece. WJM can be used to cut softer materials like plastic, rubber or wood. In order to cut harder materials like metals or granite, an abrasive …

Electrochemical Machining (ECM) – Working Principle, Equipment, Advantages and Disadvantages with Application

Electrochemical machining (ECM) is a machining process in which electrochemical process is used to remove materials from the workpiece. In the process, workpiece is taken as anode and tool is taken as cathode. The two electrodes workpiece and tool is immersed in an electrolyte (such as NaCl). When the voltage is applied across the two …

Ultrasonic Machining (USM) – Main Parts, Working Principle, Advantages and Disadvantages with Application

Ultrasonic Machining (USM) also called as ultrasonic vibration machining is a machining process in which material is removed from the surface of a part by low amplitude and high frequency vibration of a tool against surface of material in the presence of abrasive particles. The motion of the tool takes place vertically or orthogonal to …

Laser Beam Machining – Main Parts, Principle, Working with Application

Laser Beam Machining (LBM) is a form of machining process in which laser beam is used for the machining of metallic and non-metallic materials. In this process, a laser beam of high energy is made to strike on the workpiece, the thermal energy of the laser gets transferred to the surface of the w/p (workpiece). …

What is Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Process and How it Works?

Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a non traditional machining and electro thermal process in which material from the workpiece is removed by using electrical discharges (sparks). It was first observed in 1770 by Joseph Priestley. He was an English physicist. In EDM machine the material is removed by rapidly recurring (repeating) discharges of current in …

How Electron Beam Machining Process Works?

Electron Beam Machining is process in which high velocity electrons are concentrated in a narrow beam and then directed towards the workpiece for machining. When this high velocity electron strikes the workpiece, it melts and vaporizes the material from the workpiece. Working Principle In an electron beam machining, the electrons strike the workpiece with a …
