Kumar et al 15 reviewed on the new uses of electrical discharge machining
(EDM) process, with certain prominence on the prospective of this process for
surface alteration. Above and beyond removal of work material during machining,
the fundamental nature of the process results in erosion of tool material also.
Creation of the plasma passage containing of material vapors from the eroding
work material and tool electrode; and pyrolysis of the dielectric affect the
surface composition after machining and hence, its properties. Deliberate material
transfer may be carried out under specific machining conditions by using either
composite electrodes or by a break up metallic powders in the dielectric or
both. In this review on the wonder of surface modification by electric
discharge machining and upcoming leanings of its applications.
