Abstract:

The quick reference guide covers 26 different nontraditional machining processes for evaluating their potential use as economical, viable alternatives to current production processes or as ways to produce parts not possible with conventional processes. Each process is carefully described in two facing pages for easy reference. A process diagram and verbal description illustrate how the process works including the pertinent parameters involved. The proper applications of the process are described as are the material removal rates and tolerances achievable with it. The availability of equipment or components for a system is discussed. Photographs and graphs illustrate relevant aspects of the processes. The guide is divided into four sections by the principal energy mode used by the process. Each section has a table summarizing the surface integrity effects observed for each energy group. Additional tables in the beginning of the guide compare typical surface finishes and metal removal rates.
