Non-Traditional Machining Method is an advanced method used to overcome the problems of Traditional Machining methods. The Non-Traditional Machining methods include Ultrasonic Machining, Laser Beam Machining, Water Jet Machining, Abrasive Water Jet Machining, Electron Beam Machining, etc. which were presented in this article in a detailed way.
The non-Traditional Machining method is an advanced method used to overcome the problems of Traditional Machining methods. In this article, a detailed explanation of Non-Traditional Machining was presented.
These limitations must and should know by a Mechanical Engineering Aspirant to understand the Non-Traditional Machining Methods in an easier manner.
This is the complete explanation about 8 Limitations and Methods You Must know for the Occurrence of Non-Traditional Machining Methods in a detailed manner.
Detailed Explanation of Non-Traditional Machining Processes:
It is one of the types of Non-Traditional Machining methods which produces Circular, non-Circular holes of very small size is <1mm size can be produced by using this Ultrasonic Machining Method.
When very frequency vibrations are applied to the tool, the tool is vibrating at a very high frequency. This tool will induce impact loads onto the abrasive particles which in turn induces impact loads onto the workpiece.
It is also known as Spark Machining or Spark Eroding process.
In this process, electrical energy is used to generate the Spark between the tool and workpiece submerged under the dielectric medium so that material removal takes place from the surface of the workpiece by local melting or Vaporization.
The Optimum gap between the tool and the workpiece is 0.03 mm.
Voltage – 70V
Electrolyte used: Dielectric Fluid (Kerosene).
The dielectric fluid in the normal form acts as an insulator whereas at proper voltage or increase in voltage makes the dielectric fluid is Ionized.

In this process, the combination of electrical energy and chemical energy makes the removal of material from the surface of a workpiece. It works on the principle of Faraday’s law of electrolysis.
Principle-Faraday’s law of electrolysis: The mass of a substance deposited or liberated at any electrode on passing a certain amount of charge is directly proportional to its chemical equivalent weight.
Electrolyte used: NaCl (Conducting Electrolyte).
Wear Ratio: Infinity (because of no Tool Wear)

It is advanced in Water Jet Machining Process which includes Abrasives as a medium. A detailed explanation of Abrasive Water Jet Machining was presented below.
To overcome the second disadvantage of water jet machining, the abrasive particles will be added into the water so that the abrasive particles also come out from the nozzle at a very high velocity.
Therefore the optimum percentage of abrasives will be about 40 to 60%.
Electron beam machining also comes under one of those Non-traditional machining methods where highly dedicated accuracy is maintained. The brief explanation of EBM was explained below in a detailed manner.
When the power supply is given to the laser gun it is producing very high-intensity electromagnetic waves in the form of a beam called a laser beam with a wavelength ranging from 0.1 to 70 micrometers.
When this high-intensity electromagnetic wave beam is incident on the workpiece, the electromagnetic wave energy is converted into heat energy based on surface phenomena radiation heat transfer.
