Abstract

Nowadays, advanced turning processes are extensively being adopted to perform different types of turning operations such as straight turning, taper turning on Hastelloy, Nimonic, and Inconel, stainless steel, and tool steel to fabricate better quality cylindrical and rotating parts such as miniature-bars, miniature-pins, miniature-electrodes, and miniature-tools. This paper presents a review of the previous research conducted on the turning of miniature cylindrical bars using thermoelectric-erosion based turning processes namely thermoelectric-erosion turning (TET) and wire-assisted thermoelectric-erosion turning (WTET). It also highlights work and tool electrode materials, types of dielectrics, detailed specifications of turning, types of turning, process parameters, performance measures, advantages and limitations, and key findings. The paper ends with conclusions and future research directions. This paper aims to facilitate researchers and scholars by highlighting the potential and capabilities of TET and WTET processes and providing relevant information for ease of fabrication of miniature parts and components from a wide range of difficult-to-machine materials.
