    The full potential of composite materials is hindered by the high manufacturing costs associated with the difficulties experienced in machining these composites. Machining composites using conventional machining processes such as turning, drilling etc., generally results in excessive tool wear due to the presence of the hard particles which results in a very abrasive nature of this material. Conventional cutting using diamond tools is costly and/or technically difficult. Consequently non-conventional machining processes such as Electro ...
