The growing trend of miniaturization of products and rapid development in precision engineering demand higher machining quality of micro-holes, micro-grooves and complicated 3D micro-structures in parts of especially difficult-to-machine materials. Assisted-type HMPs were developed specifically to overcome the limitations of advanced machining processes and to improve the machining quality and productivity. Assisted-type HMPs are another important category of HMPs whereby assistance of an external source is used to overcome the limitations of the primary material removal process to facilitate efficient and effective machining. This chapter discusses working principles, process mechanisms and typical applications of some important vibration, heat, abrasive and magnetic field-assisted hybrid machining processes.
