Classification of Advanced Machining / Material Removal Processes:

These processes are referred to a typical group of advanced machining processes in which the excess material is removed by non-traditional source of energy arising from electrical, mechanical, thermal or chemical source. Most of these processes don’t use a sharp cutting tool, as in the conventional case. Advanced material removal processes are generally classified according to the type of energy used to remove material. The classification of these processes based on the energy is given as below The processes based on use of Electrochemical Energy are:
 Electro-Chemical Machining (ECM),
 Electro-Chemical Grinding (ECG),
The processes based on the use of Thermal Energy are:
 Electric- Discharge Machining (EDM),
 Wire-Cut Electric Discharge Machining (WEDM)
 Laser Beam Machining (LBM),
 Electron Beam Machining (EBM).
The processes based on the use of Mechanical Energy are:
 Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)
 Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM),
 Water Jet Machining (WJM),
 Abrasive Water Jet Machining
 Ultrasonic Machining (USM),
