Non Conventional Machining
Comparison between Conventional and Non-conventional 
machining :
Sr.
No
Conventional Non-Conventional
1
Direct contact of tool and 
workpiece.
Tools are non-conventional technique 
like Laser beam, electric arc etc.
2
Cutting tool is always harder than 
w/p.
Tool may not be harder and it may not 
be physical presence.
3 Tool life is less due to high wear. Tool life is more.
4
Generally Macroscopic chip 
formation.
Material removal occur with or without 
chip formation .
5
Material removal takes place due to 
application of cutting force.
It uses different energy like electrical, 
Thermo-Chemical  etc. to provide 
machining.
6 Suitable for all material Not suitable for all material.
7
It cannot be used to make prototype 
parts very effectively.
It can be used to produce prototype 
parts very effectively.

Principle of EDM:
? The main attraction of EDM over conventional machining is that
this technique use thermoelectric process to erode undesired
material from the w/p.
Construction :
? System consist of Shaped tool, Power supply source, Dielectric
fluid and its circulation line, Servo controlled tool feed mechanism
and work.
? Tool Cathode ( Negative terminal)
? Work Anode ( Positive terminal)
? Terminals are connected to DC power supply to create potential
difference between work and tool.
? Distance between work and tool is known as Spark gap and it is
filled by dielectric fluid.
