Variations in Surface Roughness and Material Removal by using Chemical/Chemically Assisted/ Hybrid Machining Processes - A Review


Background/Objectives: Non-traditional machining is nowadays widely used in industrial as well as research areas to increase both machining accuracy as well as machining efficiency. Non-traditional methods of machining are well known for machining hard fragile materials having complex shapes and complex mechanical properties. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: With regard to the machining of such materials the review paper has been presented including chemical machining techniques used by the researchers to achieve the higher machining efficiency and better removal rate. Findings: To bring such materials under industrial use number of machining techniques falling under the category of non-traditional machining is implemented. One of the oldest such technique is chemical machining or chemically assisted machining which include a chemical reaction for oxidizing the material surface which makes material removal easier. Improvements/Applications: This paper presents the effects of chemical machining on surface roughness and material removal which may be further used by the researchers and industrial applications too.
