This book provides a convenient, single source of information on advanced machining, material forming, and joining processes. It describes available technologies that use tools, such as high velocity material jets, pulsed magnetic fields, light beams, electrochemical reactions, and more. Organized by type of process (mechanical, chemical, electrochemical, and thermal), the book discusses 31 important nontraditional processes and covers each processas principles, equipment, capabilities, and operating parameters. The author includes a list of nontraditional manufacturing firms, nearly 250 figures that clearly illustrate the technologies, and numerous bibliographic citations for additional reading.Before the late 1960s, EDM machines for small-hole drilling relied on manual refeeding of the electrodes. ... reposition the electrode(s) against the workpiece, reclamp, and restart the drilling cycle. ...
