Abstract:

The mechanism of various direct energy machining processes is presented. Machine requirements are discussed. Direct energy machining processes, at the present state of the art, are a breakthrough to the solution of shaping of materials which cannot be machined economically using edged cutting tools. Direct energy machining processes are a solution to the impracticability of hand working holes and geometrical configurations which cannot be formed with rotating or reciprocating edged tools. Direct energy machining is a solution to the problem of machining without distortion. Material hardness is an insignificant factor in direct energy machining. Technological advances in machine construction have elevated direct energy machining to production capacity.
