Since the cost of using conventional machining is generally prohibitive, nonconventional machining such as wire electric discharge machining
(WEDM) is the ideal technique in dealing with these materials .
on the other hand, some techniques such as electric discharge machining (EDM) and wire electric discharge machining (WEDM) are quite successful for machining of MMCs.
Wire electric discharge machining was first introduced to the manufacturing industry in the late 1960s.
In this context, wire electric discharge machining
(WEDM) seems to be a better choice for machining the MMCs because it offers easy control and has capability of machining intricate complex shapes WEDM is a type of thermal advanced machining process capable of accurately machining the parts having varying hardness, complex shapes and sharp edges that are difficult to machine by other traditional and nontraditional machining processes.
